This comes barely a week ahead of the International Criminal Court (ICC) review conference in Kampala.

The Chairperson of the Noble Women Initiative Wangari Maathai says women are often, victims who are unrecognized during periods of armed conflicts and yet to whom justice is denied when these armed conflicts end.

Maathai says she is glad the Rome Statute criminalizes aspects like rape and other atrocities that specifically target women.

He says she hopes the ICC can build on what is provided in the Rome Statute to provide the much need justice to the women who have always been denied justice after the end of armed conflicts.
