"Violence against Women and Girls in Haiti: The Enemy Within" (with video)

Say NO UNiTE, with video (08:11):
Narrated by internationally renowned TV journalist Daljit Dhaliwal, this 21st Century short documentary goes deep into Haiti's makeshift camps to expose acts of violence and sexual assaults women, especially young girls, have encountered since the country's devastating earthquake in January left 1.5 million homeless. While measures are being taken by, for instance, the Haitian National Police, UN police and UNIFEM (part of UN Women), to curb such type of violence, this video underscores what has yet to be done to ensure the safety of women and girls as Haiti continues to build itself back from the ground up.

Publisher: 21st Century with support from UNIFEM (part of UN Women); Date of Release: October 2010).
