D.R. of Congo: the crime of being born a woman

Trailblazer on the plight of women in D.R of Congo: “They may feel that the only crime they have committed was being born into this world as a woman. What’s even a worse, a Congolese woman.
Instead of being able to proudly walk this earth, provide for themselves and their families and reach for goals that many are free to reach for, they live through unimaginable horrors while their government and the rest of the world turn their head.”
