A press release made in connection to the RLP video documentary, "Gender Against Men", that was launched on 4 June 2009. The documentary explores the hidden world of sexual and gender based violence against men in the conflicts of the Great Lakes region; it is a movie about men, violence, and the inability of society to recognize or address male vulnerability in times of conflict. The movie raises as many questions as it gives answers in its quest for an honest examination of the gender stereotypes underlying mainstream approaches to sexual and gender based violence (SGBV).
