The wounds of rape, abuse and sexual assault for the women of the Democratic Republic of Congo will likely scar them forever, but V-Day Toronto attempts to stop the bleeding by preventing and bandaging it. Bringing spotlight to women behind bars, women of tragic tales educated the heartfelt guests about their personal experiences; as well as the history and extreme cases of sexual violence occurring in the war zones of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Following the teach-in-conference, supporters were touched, as the V-Day Benefit Concert wowed the crowd by raising their voices with melodic tunes and lyrics of anti-violence and awareness.
