Mouvement National des survivant.e.s des violences sexuelles en RDC

National Coordinator

Description

Tatiana Mukanire is the National Coordinator of the Mouvement national des survivant.es violences sexuelles (National Movement of Survivors of Sexual Violence) in the DRC and a human rights and women's rights advocate. A victim of rape used as a weapon of war in her country in 2004, she turned her experiences into action. She says she has gone from being a victim to being a woman leader in the community. In 2017 she co-founded the National Movement of Survivors of Sexual Violence, after writing a letter to her rapist, a powerful text that has inspired many other survivors to break the silence. Tatiana Mukanire is also a member of SEMA, the global network of victims and survivors to end wartime sexual violence, an initiative of the Dr. Denis Mukwege Foundation.”
