Faced with the increase in rape, Denis Mukwege, gynecologist and Nobel Peace Prize winner, pleads for positive masculinity.
For Brut, he testifies.
Denis Mukwege recalls the extent to which crises constitute periods during which violence against women and children increases considerably. The pandemic is no exception to the rule, the number of violence, especially sexual, has exploded, in particular in the Democratic Republic of Congo where Denis Mukwege works as a gynecologist.
For Denis Mukwege, raising awareness in peacetime would be one of the solutions to be explored to reduce these figures. This requires a paradigm shift between men and women, based on equality and mutual respect. The doctor also recalls that men represent 1% of victims of sexual violence for a particularly high suicide rate.
