Protecting women's rights in conflict zones

In hot conflict zones like South Sudan, Iraq and Syria, there are escalating reports of sexual violence and slavery of women and girls. We’ll talk about these crises with Samer Muscati, emergencies senior researcher for the Women's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch. A Canadian, Muscati also reports on the decades-long disappearances of indigenous women and girls in British Columbia, Canada. They vanish from Highway 16, a stretch of road metaphorically known as the “Highway of Tears". (Photo: Flickr/UNAMID)
