Howard French on Rape Story in the DRC

There is something wrong when the narrative of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is one of rape when thousands of people have died due to the conflict argues Howard French. In the video, he questions the draw to stories of rape and less coverage of death. To me, he does an excellent job in saying that rape is terrible and should be reported, but it is not the only thing happening in the DRC. In fact, it is not the only atrocity.

The question is how to add to the existing narrative. I do not see it changing any time soon.
