Secretary-General's message on the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict [scroll down for French version]

Sexual violence in conflict is a tactic of war and repression that terrorizes populations, destroys lives and fractures communities.
Perpetrators rarely face the consequences of their actions. Instead, it is the survivors who carry the burden of stigma and trauma throughout their lives, often doubly brutalized by harmful social norms and victim-blaming.
