"Sexual abuse of women and girls in conflict is not a sign of vulnerability but of inequality - well said by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark at UNFPA event "

 

"Sexual violence is a denial of human dignity and unbinds the ties that would normally hold families and communities together.

Vulnerability to sexual violence is not a sign of weakness, but of inequality."
