In light of the renewed violence in Congo’s eastern provinces, HBO is airing an encore presentation of The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo this Thursday at 10:30pm EST. Please share this with friend and sponsor a woman in Congo through Women for Women International. Help us break the silence.
In 2006, Emmy Award winning producer/director Lisa F. Jackson spent the year in the war zones of eastern DR Congo. She documented the tragic situation women and girls are forced to deal with as they stand in the middle of a country’s conflict they did not create, and cannot control.
