This isn’t fun to read. An excerpt:

“These are the strongest and most incredible women on the planet,” Ensler says.

They are women like Lumo Furaha who recently told V-Day why she decided to talk publicly about the time scores of armed men raped her repeatedly.

“They wanted to destroy me; destroy my body and kill my spirit,” she recalled. “I am speaking out because I don’t want any child of the next generation to have to live through what I have lived through.”

I’m sometimes embarrassed by how little of the world I (a) really know about, and (b) can really impact at all.
