June 19. marks International day for the elimination of sexual violence in conflict. The United Nations General Assembly declared this day to raise public awareness of the need to end the sexual violence that occurs during armed conflicts and honor victims of sexual violence and to all those who devoted their lives to preventing this kind of violence.

This date was chosen because on the same date in 2008, the UN Security Council in its resolution 1820 condemned sexual assault as a war tactic and proclaimed it an obstacle to peace building.

The term “sexual violence in conflict” refers to rape, sexual slavery, forcible prostitution, forcible pregnancy, forcible abortion, forcible sterilization, forcible marriage or any other similar form of sexual violence to women, men, girls or boys who is directly or indirectly associated with some conflict.
