Invisible Survivors: Girls in Armed Groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo From 2009 to 2015


United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the DR Congo (MONUSCO)

Abstract

In November 2015, United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the DR Congo (MONUSCO) published its second report on children associated with armed groups, entitled “Invisible Survivors: Girls in Armed Groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo From 2009 to 2015”. The report offers statistics from data collected between the adoption of the 2009 Child Protection Law – prohibiting child recruitment under DRC Law – and May 2015. Although fewer girls than boys are recruited, this report pays particular attention to their specific ordeals. Armed groups’ female members are often subjected to additional forms of abuse, such as sexual exploitation and other types of gender-based violence.
