A multimedia exhibition at the Ending Sexual Violence in Conflict summit this week showed the important work of grassroots women activists in easternDemocratic Republic of the Congo in responding to sexual violence in conflict.

It was produced by the International Campaign to Stop Rape and GenderViolence in Conflict. The award-winning photographer Pete Muller and filmmakers travelled to DRC to capture the work of the activists in pictures and video. The exhibit will be available online in September.
