Rape as a weapon of war has caused so much suffering that many people packed into a House of Lords Committee Room to hear an update on the campaign from the Prime Minister's Special Representative for the Prevention of Sexual Violence in Conflict, Rt Hon Baroness Anelay DBE. Some had suffered sexual violence in conflict and provided powerful and shocking testimonies. Others shared their personal experiences of growing up where such experiences were common. They explained the tactics they were taught to avoid being raped even from the age of seven years old.
