I am writing in the wee hours in the morning because I have been glued to the TV watching a documentary on the violence towards women in the Congo called THE GREATEST SILENCE: RAPE IN THE CONGO. I strongly feel that every woman should watch this, although it is graphic and disturbing. But somehow I felt that I had to watch it, if not to pay some respect to the women who were brave enough to acknowledge what had happened to them.
I know Opera did a special on this a couple of years ago, but I had never seen the film before this evening. Powerful and something I will always remember, the faces of those women.
