Senegal: Casamance women speak out
Women have paid a particularly heavy price throughout the conflict in Casamance between the Senegalese security forces and the MFDC, which has been ongoing since 1982. During this conflict some women have been taken hostage, others have been kidnapped, raped or threatened with rape. Through the cases of the seven women examined in this document, Amnesty International wishes to draw the attention to the suffering and denial of justice inflicted on dozens of Casamance women and their families, who are direct or indirect victims of this conflict.
