Two dynamic agents of change: Denis Mukwege, founder of Panzi Hospital and winner of the 2008 UN Human Rights Prize, and Eve Ensler, founder of V-Day, will discuss Dr. Mukwege's work with survivors of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a country wrought with sexual violence against women and girls to torture, humiliate and destroy. The V-Day movement and UNICEF have united to bring attention to the needs of Congolese women and girls. Dr. Mukwege and Ms. Ensler will speak about violence against women, the efforts underway to end it, and their work supporting a new wave of women leaders.
