Media Analysis (Under-Reported Story) #2

http://www.mediafreedominternational.org/2011/09/20/congo-a-war-against-women/

I thought it was important to follow up my major news media analysis about women gaining the right to vote in Saudi Arabia, with an under-reported news media analysis about the treatment of women in the Congo.  I have read and watched documentaries aboutthe disgusting treatment of women in the Congo but the statistics in this article were shocking.  The article reports that 1 152 women in the Congo are being raped every single day. An estimated 1.8 million of the 70 million populations has been raped says the UN.This is a major issue and although I have heard about this problem I didn’t realize of sever it was. These statistics should be widely publicized.
