Congolese Woman Tells Story of Violence

This story originally appeared at as part of World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

My name is Lukogo Cirimwanmi Grace and I’m from Congo, precisely from South Kivu. Here there was a woman from a village with children and a husband. One day the interahamwe came in the village, they entered in the house of this woman, they raped her and after that they put salt into her sex. In the end they killed the children and the husband. As for today she’s like a crazy person. It’s a shame here in the South Kivu.

World Pulse believes that women’s stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.
