What can Americans do to stop gang-rapes in the Congo?
“The eastern Congo is known as the “rape capital of the world” where savage mobs use sexual violence to subdue the population and vie for control of the “conflict minerals” used to make cell phones and laptops around the world” (from: As Many as 200 Women, Babies Gang-Raped in Congo).
Reportedly, U.S. Secretary of State H.R. Clinton says ending the violence in the region is a personal priority. What can she do?
Considering the nature of warfare used in the Congo, what can anyone do to end this violence towards women and girls as young as 5 years old, and towards men and baby boys (the soldier and rebels attack anyone in their way)?
Reading the article makes me think about the laptop and cell phone I’m using, and wonder about the rape victims who suffered violence in order for me to have such luxuries. Is there anything an average American can do for the victims?
