    "According to AI, sexual and gender-based violence was widespread in the context of the conflict. There were cases of sexual slavery and gang-rape, including of girls as young as eight years old. There had also been cases of men and boys being castrated.

    WLPoC stated that women and girls living in Unity State were at heightened risk of experiencing rape, and other forms of sexual violence. Rape and sexual violence not related to the conflict were likely to be more prominent than conflict-related sexual violence, however, it had been less documented. [Paras 32-33]"

The Government has established fourteen (14) Special Protection Units (SPU) at various police stations in Juba and other major cities to enable women, girls and children, report cases of gender based violence (GBV). In addition, the Government with international partners, established women Friendly Spaces in the country so that women and girls are encouraged to discuss issues related to their welfare and training on necessary social skills. The Government, with support from some financial international partners, advanced financial grants to women with aim of carrying out group-businesses. Before the 16 December 2013 conflict, the Government made plans for establishment of women’s bank and women’s empowerment trust fund with view of eliminating women inability to access capital credits and other financial services.
