My Body is Not A Weapon

A young woman powerfully declares that her body is not a weapon. Another vows to bring joy to all she meets. An intergenerational collection of singers dance in the courtyard of a holistic healing center. Female police recruits march at attention in Bukavu. All of them, along with a team of surgeons lead by a selfless and inspiring doctor – Denis Mukwege, a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate (Democratic Republic of Congo)- stand at the intersection of a wartime rape epidemic, survivors, and world leaders seeking a freer, more just path to peace.
