The level of violence against women in Liberia has remained alarmingly high since the end of the
conflict, even as the nature of violence has changed. What has also remained is
the impact of such high rates of sexual violence. For many such survivors they
have been forced to live alongside known perpetrators; whilst others have been
disowned by their families once it became known that they were sexually assaulted.
Alternatively other survivors have deliberately chosen not to return to their
former homes so as to avoid such traumatic situations.
