The cartography of suffering: Women Under Siege maps sexualized violence in Syria

At Women Under Siege, their mission is to show the world that each woman raped is a person who has been illegally brutalized against her will, that she is part of a family and a community that may now be shredded. They aim to show that this woman, wherever she is, matters.

Women Under Siege are gathering reports of rape, sexual assault, and groping—as well as the consequences of sexualized violence, including mental health issues and pregnancy. By utilizing Ushahidi crowdsourcing technology, which allows survivors, witnesses, and first-responders to report via email, Twitter (#RapeinSyria), or directly to the site, they are able to get these stories to you in real time.
