Day of Action: End Rape in War!

Today is the culmination of the Nobel Women's Inititative's conference to end sexual violence in conflict.  And how appropriate--they are ending it with a day of action!  Love it.  Here is their call to action:

Did you know that up 500,000 women were raped during the Rwandan genocide?
Did you know that over 64,000 women were raped in Sierra Leone?
Did you know that over 40,000 women were raped in Bosnia-Herzegovina?
Did you know that thousands of women are raped every day in Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo?

Enough is enough.
Thursday is our international day of action against sexual violence in conflict.
