In 2005, the ICC (International Criminal Court) issued arrest warrants against Joseph Kony and four other senior LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) commanders for crimes against humanity and war crimes committed in northern Uganda. The following year, Kony and the LRA moved out of northern Uganda, conducting operations in several neighboring countries including the Central African Republic. Since February 2008, the rebel group has been carrying out attacks in the southeastern provinces of the Central African Republic. It is estimated that hundreds of women and girls have been abducted and forcibly recruited by the LRA in attacks against the civilian population of the Central African Republic. This video was made in partnership with the Women's Initiatives for Gender Justice and JUPEDEC (Jeunesse Unie pour la Protection de l'Environnement et le Développement Communautaire). In it, two courageous young women recount their abduction by the LRA and the rapes, sexual violence, and beatings they suffered while in captivity, as well as their lives following the return to their communities.
