Every year about this time a women's organization posts signs like these around Bogotá - a reminder that Colombia's armed conflict continues, and that it disproportionately impacts women and girls. Girls and women comprise a disproportionate number of the millions of displaced Colombians, and rape has been used as a weapon by various armed groups.
According to a recent El Tiempo story, between 2001 and 2009, 94,500 women suffered sexual abuse related to Colombia's armed conflict, and 26,300 became pregnant as a result.
"There is no justification.
Nothing justifies violence against women."
