"Nothing about us, without us!"

SEMA, the Global Network of Victims and Survivors of Wartime Sexual Violence, brings survivors of sexual violence together.  

SEMA members mobilise collectively to speak out about the realities of sexual violence in conflict and act in solidarity to bring an end to wartime sexual violence and impunity.

"What happened to us was against our will. The perpetrator doesn't admit their wrongdoing, and by our being quiet we also keep their crimes secret. We have to speak out for the world to know."
"Being with all the other survivors made me feel respected, loved and free, this is what I am striving for. With them, I realised that I am not alone, that survivors are strong, and that together we can bring positive change."
