"I took my children and fled into the bush for fear of being attacked by a group of Tongo Tongo. If you come across a group of 10, all 10 of them will rape you. If they get you, they won't let you go." - Felicité, a displaced woman in Central African Republic (CAR). On March 8, International Women's Day, as on any ordinary day, thousands of women worldwide will leave their homes to flee war or persecution. The fact that they are women makes their ordeal even more harrowing.
