> A United Nations report in 2016 recorded 803 rape cases the previous year in the country of 4.5 million, and found only 2 percent of sexual violence cases led to a conviction. > Margaret Taylor, the director of Liberia’s Women Empowerment Network, said last month her NGO had recorded 600 cases of rape between June and August. From 803 cases last year to 600 cases just last month is a fucking pretty big jump.
