In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a country both rich in natural resources and devastated by war, women are striving to protect their land, assert their rights, and bring peace to their homeland. Now, on World Pulse, they are speaking out on everything from ending sexual violence, combatting poverty, to using tech for good. Read their stories, celebrate their progress, and connect with them to help move global gender equity forward.
Right now, women in Minembwe, an isolated mountain area in DRC, are protesting and calling out for protection. Sign the Change.org petition to demand the UN and Congolese authorities offer them unconditional aid.
