This film was a One World Media award nominee.

The July rape of aid workers in South Sudan made headlines around the world.

The incident was brutal but not uncommon – one in three women are sexually or physically assaulted in their lifetimes. It’s a reminder that rape is still used as a weapon of war and many victims – wherever they are – face stigma, shame and silence.

On World Humanitarian Day, IRIN visits Millie Wonder, a rape survivor who gives self-defence training to schoolgirls in a Nairobi slum.
