Lisa Ling and Oprah talk about helping the Congo
Lisa: Women in the Congo are considered "war booty," essentially. They are the ones who are suffering the most. The villages are attacked in the middle of the night by young soldiers. They violently rape the women. They've killed so many people already in six years. Four million people—and no one is paying attention. ... This is happening right now.

Oprah: It's happening right now. And I feel a responsibility that we have a voice to let people know what's going on, and to not to do that, I think, would be a crime.

Help women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo through the organization Women For Women International. Learn more by calling 202-737-7705 or visiting www.womenforwomen.org.
