The Greatest Silence – DRC’s Women Find Their Voice

tsFrom the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange –

Since 1998, a brutal war has been raging in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Over 4 million people have died. And there are the uncountable casualties: the many tens of thousands of women and girls who have been systematically kidnapped, raped, mutilated and tortured by soldiers from both foreign militias and the Congolese army.

The world knows nothing of these women. Their stories have never been told. They suffer and die in silence. In The Greatest Silence, these brave women finally speak.

The film will be presented by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange on Friday, June 5th, at 6:30pm. Join the viewing and discussion afterwards. There is no fee to participate.
