There has been a "lack of recognition" in addressing sexual violence against men and boys, according to a gender specialist, speaking at UN Headquarters.

Kelli Muddell is Director of the Gender Justice Program at the International Center for Transitional Justice, a UN partner organization that specializes in providing redress for human rights abuses in post-conflict areas.

She said most male victims are embarrassed to come forward because it is an act that "challenges their manhood".

Andita Listyarini asked Ms Muddell how serious the problem was for men and boys.
