Sonke supports the Nobel Women’s Initiative call to support Fatou Bensouda

On Friday 15 June, The Stop Rape in Conflict Campaign issued a press release supporting Fatou Bensouda in her new role as the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.

To Support Fatou and ensure she has a strong mandate to support justice for survivors of rape & gender violence, the campaign encourages all members to write to their Head of State to ask that:

  • their country ratify the Rome Statute and join the ICC, or
  • their country contribute to the UN Trust Fund for Victims earmarked pool for victims of sexual and/or gender-based violence

The campaign emphasises the use of social media like Facebook and Twitter with the #IPLEDGE and #SupportFatou hashtags.
