Lord Alton of Liverpool, the Coalition for Genocide Response and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Eritrea invite you to a webinar entitled:
‘A Tigrayan womb should never give birth’: The War Waged Against Tigrayan Women
“Our problem is with your womb. Your womb gives birth to Woyane [a derogatory term used to refer to the TPLF]. A Tigrayan womb should never give birth” a Tigrayan woman was told after she was gang-raped and mutilated. Hers is just one of many similar reports emerging daily from Tigray. This suggests that rape and sexual violence against Tigrayan women are a commonly used weapon of the war – and might even be reaching the threshold for being a genocidal act.
The panellists will discuss the situation of Tigrayan women, consider the nature of the atrocities and the needed responses.
