Sexual Violence in the Congo

In March 2016, Platon and The People's Portfolio completed a mission to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to document the struggle to end sexual violence against women and girls. The project interviewed and captured through portraiture the dozens of doctors, activists, lawyers, police, students, and advocates who are leading the fight for justice and accountability, and also tackled the long-standing source of conflict: natural resource wealth that fuels violence in the country. Partners for this project included Physicians for Human Rights and Panzi Hospital and Foundations. TIME published the portfolio in February 2017.
