DRC has been called the “rape capital of the world,” yet measuring the magnitude and impact of gender violence remains difficult. Human rights abuses in the Congo have been covered widely by the media, but are we hearing the full story? Boston University and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting will convene a panel of journalists, public health experts, artists, and activists to discuss the challenges to accurate, nuanced reporting on Congo.
