‘Being Women Allows A Deeper Connect With Survivors Of Gender-Based Violence’

Amitabh P Revi and Prateek Suri Juba, South Sudan 8 March 2019

A surge in sexual violence in parts of South Sudan targeting girls as young as eight years old has a February 2019 joint report by UN human rights office (OHCHR) and United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) calling for urgent government measures to protect victim-survivors and bring the perpetrators to justice. On International Women’s Day, meet three Indian women peacekeepers in South Sudan: Major Seema Dalal, Major Suman and Major Meghna Thorat. They speak to SNI Associate Editor Amitabh P Revi and Video Journalist Prateek Suri in Juba on how they provide a crucial connect with women and child survivors to the conflict- and gender-based violence.
