, Index number: AFR 32/001/2002

This report sets out to answer some of the questions put to Amnesty International by women victims of violence. It looks at violence against women, particularly sexual violence, and focuses on rape committed by both security officials and private individuals. It examines why women subjected to violence are not adequately protected by the law and why those who commit violence against women continue to operate with impunity.
