No lawyer, academic, policy maker or pundit will ever be able to convey the raw devastation experienced by survivors of rape behind bars, nor the life-changing empowerment felt by those who do decide to speak out about the abuses they endured. JDI encourages journalists to include the voices of former detainees in their stories, honoring their experiences and their wisdom.
