WTF?!?! Study Shows That 48 Women Are Raped Every Hour In The Congo

- By Bossip Staff

This might be the saddest statistic we ever read.

DAKAR, Senegal — The central African nation of Congo has been called the worst place on earth to be a woman. A new study released Wednesday shows it’s even worse than previously thought: 1,152 women are raped every day, a rate equal to 48 per hour.

That rate is 26 times more than the previous estimate of 16,000 rapes reported in one year by the United Nations.
Michelle Hindin, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health who specializes in gender-based violence, said the rate could be even higher. The source of the data, she noted, is a survey that was conducted through face-to-face interviews, and people are not always forthcoming about the violence they have suffered when talking to strangers.

“The numbers are astounding,” she said.

Congo — a nation of 70 million people that is equal in size to Western Europe — has been plagued by decades of war. Its vast forests are rife with militias that have systematically used rape to destroy communities.

The study found that 29 Congolese women out of 1,000 were raped. That means that even in the parts of Congo that are least affected by the war, a woman is 58 times more likely to be raped than a woman in the United States, where the annual rate is 0.5 per 1,000 women.

Previous estimates of the number of rapes were derived from police and health center reports in the nation’s troubled east where the conflict is concentrated. The authors of the study used figures from a government health survey and pooled data from across the country.

The highest frequency of rape was found in North Kivu, the province most affected by the conflict, where 67 women out of 1,000 have been raped at least once.

Clearly the men over there ain’t sh*t. Someone needs to just go over there and start castrating these bastards by the thousands, bet that’ll make ’em think twice…

      First of all, Libya had two clear sides fighting in the desert, one with heavy armor, one without. That allowed airpower to be of some use. I still don’t think much has been accomplished there. There is not really much the U.S. can do in the situation in the Congo, but I can guarantee you that anything we do will be spun as a grab for mineral resources, of which the Congo has a lot.

  • dragongirl

    how sad…blacks, africans etc have fought hard not to be called savages…but this is just what this is..savagery!!animalistic and deviant behavior. Looks like Africans and black americans are on the same track….total destruction….

    Gaping azz is trying to get there you know his azz hole can accommodate 5 men at time easily! America get ready for this mess… marriage… open mess! Throughout history Societies fought long to protect men from raping. That is the issue with the catholic church….men on men closed society. Nobody cares about gay humping but we care about abuse of power.

    The UN really needs to jump in on matters like this, instead of wasting time wondering what USA is doing every week.

    So whats black men’s excuse in America for mistreating our black women? Such a lost people we have become. Only a fool could believe this world will go on like this.

  • Wow

    @humm, you hit it right on the head.It’s very sad to hear what goes in other countries, but if that country do not have resources/commodities to trade, the US won’t interfere.

  • jt

    who cares they have no oil!what do you expect from poor uneducated savages?

  • Michelle

    All the comments in the world won’t make a difference. We as humans need to take a stand and fight the unjustice of crimes against women and children. There are rapist living among us, right here in America. It just so happens that there is nothing that is being done over in Africa. There are too many rogue,renegade men terrorizing people, but no law to make them accountable!! The UN can’t be in all parts of Africa all the time. We don’t want to go over there and wage war because it would be a never ending battle, just like the war we’re fighting over in the middle east! I say arm the women over in Africa with guns and teach them how to fight back against these animals. Ambush these sick f***’s when they’re high or sleep!
