In the Democratic Republic of Congo, a decade of fighting and hardship has left more than 5 million people dead. But for countless women and girls, a particular horror stalks them: rape and its legacy of shame. In Congo, sexual violence has become a weapon of war. Tens of thousands of women have been attacked and raped - in their fields, in their homes, in front of their families.

Oxfam's striking short film, shot in eastern Congo in 2008, elevates the stories of women working to overcome brutality and asks viewers to take action by joining a growing community of people who will not stand by any longer. Together, we can help Congo's women and girls fight for their rights and well-being. To learn more, visit http://www.oxfamamerica.org/drc
