Grantee Fiona Lloyd-Davies directed and produced a BBC Newsnight segment that investigated whether Congolese officers ordered soldiers to rape women. BBC reporter Anne Mawathe narrates the segment, which aired on April 10. In the film, a soldier claimed he was ordered to rape women as a tactic of war, and women spoke about brutal attacks they suffered as the Congolese army retreated from M23 rebels last year.

This particular film was wholly funded by BBC Newsnight. Lloyd-Davies is working on a larger project with support from the Pulitzer Center on Congo's mineral wealth and conflict.
