“When I first started studying sex trafficking in 2008, I thought it mean girls were kidnapped and chained to beds,” explains Professor Meghan Sobel.

5 The Horrors of Child Sexual Assault and Abuse – “Speaking the Unspeakable” – A WRAL Documentary

25 jul. 2019

“Speaking the Unspeakable” tells two survivors’ stories. Michael Mack and his brother Knight Chamberlain have very different assault stories, but share some of the common characteristics of child sexual abuse; the guilt and shame felt by survivors, the fear of speaking out, the pain of keeping it secret and the manipulation of abusers who count on their victims’ silence.

Experts estimate that one in four girls and one in six boys have been sexually abused. They say the actual numbers are probably much higher since many cases go unreported.

Many victims keep the abuse a secret out of shame or guilt, or sometimes fear of repercussions from their abuser. It’s that secrecy that makes the problem far worse, not only for the victims, but also for society as a whole. How can we solve problems if we don’t talk about them, whether within our family, our community or our country?

This documentary originally aired on WRAL-TV in April 2018.

6 No Mercy: An investigative documentary by The Oregonian/OregonLive

8 okt. 2019

Tania Culver Humphrey grew up with a renowned father and a terrible secret. While Ellsworth Culver was building Oregon-based Mercy Corps into an international force for good, he sexually abused his daughter for more than a decade, beginning when she was in preschool. 
Humphrey eventually told the acclaimed humanitarian relief organization, providing graphic details of her experience and supporting documentation. But her word wasn’t enough. Mercy Corps allowed her father to continue to travel the globe as the charity’s public face. 
Now 48 and a mother herself, Humphrey wants Mercy Corps to answer the question that’s haunted her for years: Why didn’t they stop him? Read The Oregonian/OregonLive’s investigation here:…

8 Meet the Women Fighting Against Rampant Misogyny in Afghanistan

28 jun. 2016

Women Arise (2009): There’s a burgeoning women’s rights movement in Afghanistan, but can it ever succeed when there are so many obstacles in its path?

‘The Sex Law’ may have been watered down, but forced marriage, domestic violence and rape still define life for most Afghan women. Now a fledgling women’s rights movement is determined to change that legacy.

It’s more than 8 years since the Taliban ruled Herat, but for many women here life has barely changed. In this refuge called ‘Voice of Women’, Suraya tries to combat the abuse of women that has occurred under President Karzai’s watch. “Forced and child marriage has not reduced since 2001. It’’s still a common practice” says Suraya. For those not lucky enough to make it to her shelter, prison is the alternative. Young girls are charged with ‘running away from home’ and ‘adultery’. “Here rape is considered adultery” reveals Suraya. 12 year old Nadia says she “doesn’’t know how to live” any more after being raped and charged with adultery.

Earlier this year President Karzai passed a law stopping women from going out without men, restricted their power of divorce and enforced sex at least every four days. He reviewed the law after local and international pressure. But for those brave enough to fight for women’s rights, the stakes are getting higher. “I would like to suffer today for women’s rights” says Suraya. Will the women’’s rights movement be able to turn the democratic process to their advantage?

9 Nepal Cracks Down On NGO Workers Exploiting Children

11 feb. 2019

Nepal’s Children At Risk: The vulnerability of Nepal’s poorest children draws humanitarian workers from around the world. But some foreigners exploit the trust of young children, sexually abusing those they claim to protect.

“I do think that Nepal, like any country where there are a lot of very poor children, is a target because paedophiles look for disposable children”, says Llori Handrahan, who tracks abuse by aid workers. Wealthy foreigners like the Canadian Peter Daglish win the trust of entire families. After police surveillance, Daglish was charged with paedophilia, although he denies the allegations. “Since April this year, Nepalese police have charged four other foreigners with similar offences”, says filmmaker Steve Chao. Dutch psychologist Piet Hein Van Terwisga is one such man and has been jailed for his crimes. “There’s no screening going on whatsoever”, Handrahan explains.

11 Malawi: Girls victims of ‘sexual cleansing’ ritual

16 feb. 2018

In the remote southern regions of Malawi, a violent tradition is practised on young women. Girls who reach puberty are forced to have sex with a “hyena”, a man chosen by their family. Strict rules surround this rape, which is organised in the utmost secrecy. Despite being outlawed, the ancient practice endures.
This report was co-financed by the Rotary magazine’s young TV reporter prize.

Girls in southern Malawi have no say in the matter. As soon as they get their first period, they are made to spend the night with a man chosen by their family – called a “hyena” – to mark their passage to womanhood. Locals believe this “sexual cleansing” ritual is necessary to “purify” the young women and protect them from serious illnesses. But for the girls, it’s a traumatic event: rape, which can result in an unwanted pregnancy.
“Hyenas” are men chosen by the community and recruited in secret by the girls’ parents. They are paid to have these forced sexual relations. And they never use protection: a disaster in a country where 10% of the population is HIV-positive. The figure is even higher in this poor region, where 16% of inhabitants carry the virus.
The practice is now banned, but in rural Malawi, old traditions die hard and enforcing the law is difficult. Yet mentalities are slowly changing, and people are beginning to speak out against this custom. Female district chiefs and NGOs have already begun the long struggle so that one day, girls in Malawi will no longer be victims of this tradition.
