Great Lakes women demand more active role in peace talksListen /
Women-led groups in the African Great Lakes region are demanding a more active and integral role in on-going peace processes, a female activist has said.
Julienne Lusenge from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is a member of the Women's Platform for Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework backed by the UN.
As the head of a peace movement called SOFEPADI, she has braved death many times, fighting to stop violence against women in areas where armed groups operate.
She spoke to Jocelyne Sambira following a meeting with the UN Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region in New York.
