In the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, records indicate that up to half a million women have been victims of sexual violence. For many, the trauma of the initial attack is compounded by social stigmas, leaving women isolated and marginalised.
On Wednesday's Riz Khan we ask: What can be done to eradicate rape as a weapon of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo?
We are joined by world renowned feminist and activist, Eve Ensler, whose latest project "City of Joy" provides shelter and counselling to women of the DRC; and award-winning photojournalist, Marcus Bleasdale, who has spent nearly a decade covering the conflict there.
