The rape victims who agreed to be photographed

The women wanted to raise awareness and give support to others

In many communities around the world, rape and the victims of it are hidden from sight and left unacknowledged. But in Haiti, one project has involved rape victims being photographed - without their faces being shown - and in a setting of their choosing. It's aimed at raising the profile of the services available to rape victims, as well as encouraging donors to give funding. The photographer behind the project is Benedicte Kurzen - who's based in Nigeria and is a lecturer in journalism at the American University of Nigeria.
