Nobel Peace Laureates, Shirin Ebadi and Wangari Maathai, will be attending the first ever Review Conference of the International Criminal Court in Uganda from May 31 to June 11 in Uganda. The International Criminal Court has the potential to be a powerful tool in the struggle for gender justice– it has criminalized rape as a weapon of war and other atrocities that specifically target women and girls. The Court provides a glimmer of hope to the millions of women who have lived the daily reality of armed conflict and sexual violence.
