"The Greatest Silence"  

Last Friday, I made a post about the terrible rape crisis that is currently happening in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Wonderfully enough, on Tuesday, April 8th at 10PM, HBO will be airing "The Greatest Silence," a documentary about the daily suffering that women in the Congo have to undergo in being victims of rape and torture. It's great that this significant issue is finally getting the coverage it deserves. It's so important to raise awareness about this so that we can do everything in our power to stop it.
Additonally, Enough (a project to end genocide) is teaming up with HBO to organize screenings all over the country. You can visit their website for more information about how to host your own screening of "The Greatest Silence." I'm going to hold a viewing at my college in hopes that it will open people's eyes. Be sure to catch the documentary on HBO if you can't host your own screening!

What next?
