Rape of women in DR Congo ‘tops 1000 a day’: Average of 48 females aged 15-49 are raped every hour in DR Congo, 26 times more than previously thought, study reports.

This is beyond horrible. There are no words. More than 1,100 women are raped every day in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), resulting in more than 400,000 women in a 12-month period.

“In addition, Human Rights Watch reported that sexual violence in 2009 doubled in comparison with 2008. If this assessment is accurate, then the current prevalence of sexual violence is likely to be even higher than our estimates suggest.”

From Condition Critical, a photo timeline of the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Rape has been systematically employed as a weapon of war in the DRC, demoralizing and terrifying the civilian population. Thousands of women are raped every year, and nearly 50% of the victims of sexual violence are children. During the first 6 months of 2008, 5,000 cases of rape were reported in the North Kivu province alone.
