NAIROBI (TrustLaw) – The
greatest risk South Sudanese women face is in their own homes, despite the more
obvious dangers posed by continued fighting, according to a new
report
by the Small Arms Survey.

“The main threats to their security come not from traditional external sources, such as militia groups or armed conflict with Sudan, but from within their own homes,” the
report said. “In the home, the place where they should feel most secure,
women face numerous threats.”
