    Reportage Online

    'I was living with the Boss Man. I don’t love that man, but because of the war, I could not deny him. He would kill me. I would die. So I would not refuse.

    I gave birth in the bush to a daughter named Mamiaye. And when the war ended, we came out to the town. He left me here. He never came again. Nobody said I want to take care of this woman with this child. You are a woman of a rebel. You killed people during the war. And now you come for forgiveness? Not here.’ - Janet, who was abducted by rebels at age 20 and forced to fight in Sierra Leone’s 11 year civil war.

    At this week’s Global Summit to end Sexual Violence in Conflict, UN special envoy Angelina Jolie opened the event by saying that one of the goals was to end the disgrace that comes with being a victim.

    Girl Soldier, a film by Reportage photographer Jonathan Torgovnik, which chronicles the stories of Sierra Leone’s female child soldiers, is being screened at the summit. Watch the film here.

    UPDATE: Read an interview with Jonathan about the project on National Geographic Proof.
