Keith Best - Prevention of Sexual Violence in ConflictRape 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.

There were speeches from Charlotte Simon from her position as the founder of Mothers of Congo. She shared about the Congolese Inga Dam's potential to supply hydro electricity to much of Africa. She highlighted the music of Mamou and several Congolese artists.
