Mettons un terme à l’impunité des auteurs et des commanditaires du viol comme arme de guerre et à la stigmatisation des victimes, mais surtout déployons tous les efforts possibles afin de fermer leurs cicatrices et tenter de guérir les blessures et traumatismes. #StopSVC day. https://t.co/sRdbSH40fZ

En 2019, à l’occasion du forum Stand Speak Rise Up! je lançais mon Appel dans le but de rassembler le monde autour de ce fléau #StopSVC. Il reste aujourd’hui plus que jamais d’actualité. Lien vers l’Appel: https://t.co/5x7L66nqce @StandSpeakRise 📷 Sophie Margue https://t.co/SVrZRetksh

Stand Speak Rise Up! recognizes the importance of supporting survivors of #CRSV to rebuild their lives. That’s why we are proud to contribute to @nadiainitiative efforts to tangibly and sustainably invest in Yazidi women in Iraq who have survived genocide and sexual violence. https://t.co/Bdm8e8QArE

The first round of trainings of the potential #Yazidi survivors beneficiaries have taken place in South Sinjar to determine the types of businesses women want to establish, the feasibility of such businesses and the capacity of the beneficiaries to run a business on their own. https://t.co/J7VdY7m4F7
