Since the outbreak of South Sudan’s internal armed conflict in Juba in December 2013, thousands of South Sudanese have been subjected to sexual violence including rape, gang rape, sexual slavery, sexual mutilation, torture, castration, or forced nudity. As the conflict continues, the number of women, men, and
children affected by sexual violence will likely rise. The sexual violence that has occurred is shocking in its scale and level of brutality, and will leave physical, psychological, and social impacts for decades to come.
In this report, survivors of sexual violence recount their experiences, often with disturbing detail.
