Quote of the week

“We must send a message across the world that there is no disgrace in being a survivor of sexual violence; that the shame is on the aggressor. We must work together in new and unprecedented ways across borders and religions, bringing governments and people together and tackling the problem from every possible angle. And by doing this we can end the use of rape and sexual violence as a weapon of war once and for all.”
