The Wider Image: Beaten and abused, Sudan's women bear scars of fight for freedom
Hadia Hasaballah, 42, a counsellor and political activist, poses for a photograph in Khartoum, Sudan, June 27, 2019. Hasaballah works for an NGO dealing with the victims of the June 3 raid by the security forces at the sit-in site near the Defence Ministry in Khartoum. She and her team are supporting more than 100 victims. "This regime thinks in a traditional way," she said. "They know that if they humiliate the women, they will humiliate the whole people... None of the Sudanese women will officially say that they were raped because of the stigma." REUTERS/Umit Bektas SEARCH "SUDAN WOMEN" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
