Danger Zone

Dawn Piasta

Dauphin, Manitoba, Canada

The task of gathering water for the family is typically done by the woman. She may travel miles each day & the journey is long and dangerous. In conflict areas of the world women are pursued at watering holes and are at risk of being the target of the most brutal weapon of war: rape. Women and girls are being attacked, not only to dehumanize the women themselves but to humiliate, punish, control, inflict fear and displace women and to persecute the community to which they belong. The perpetrators of attacks on civilians, including sexual violence against women, must be brought to justice in trials that meet international standards of fairness. The safety of victims and witnesses must be protected.

Women and girls are being attacked, humiliated, controlled and punished.  This must stop.
