Six years after the end of the conflict in Sierra Leone, little has been done to ensure that the survivors of sexual violence receive justice, acknowledgement of their suffering or reparations which would help them to rebuild their lives. This report examines the social and individual impact of sexual violence, and documents the continuing suffering that results from discrimination, ostracism, and marginalisation of survivors and the failure to acknowledge the crimes that have been committed.
