Crossed Arms Say “Stop Rape as a Tactic of War”

As 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence continues – this event from UNHCR headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland is led by UNHCR High Commissioner Antonio Guterres.  The “Get Cross” gesture represents a campaign of UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict.  UN Action unites 12 UN system entities, including UNHCR, with the aim of ending rape as a tactic of war in response to Security Council Resolutions 1820 and 1888.
