SYNOPSIS

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), thousands of women suffer at the hands of militants, becoming victims of brutal acts of sexual violence. Dr. Denis Mukwege, founder of the Panzi Hospital and a gynecological surgeon, has dedicated his life to changing that. Having seen the devastating effects daily, Dr. Mukwege believes the international community should ban the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war – declaring it no different than the use of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. He has provided physical, psychological and legal support to more than 50 000 women of all ages.
