Uganda: De-Normalizing Sexual Violence

Women who have faced sexual violence are rarely believed, and if they decide to fight for justice, they face a long, socially isolating process that often does not end in charges being pressed. Finally, just as the #MeToo movement took over the United States, a powerful movement is underway to start the conversation about the issue of sexual violence in Uganda, beginning with grassroots organizations led by committed, passionate women.
