Close to half 48 percent of South Sudanese girls are married before their 18th birthday. 44% of girls and young women in South Sudan have experienced GBV; 48% have experiences physical violence. Gender-based violence including rape and sexual assaults are common place in South Sudan, and have only been aggravated by the current conflict. In the current conflict, sexual violence has been used as a weapon of war to terrorize entire communities and constrain people’s freedom of movement.Women and girls are still vulnerable to sexual harassment while they carry out daily duties like fetching water. Due to weak laws and poor justice and fear of retribution by perpetrators hinders many from reporting.
