August 30, 2017 (SSB) — It is universally true that, the perpetrators committed sexual violence and human rights abuses on the children and women and such as human rights gross violations and atrocities contributed to the widespread of sexual transmitted diseases in the conflict settings of South Sudan. In fact, both warring parties committed the worse human rights violations and war crimes during the onset of civil war and ethnic conflict in 2013 up to now.

However, the government turns deaf ear and blind eye to the victims and thus, ignorance and negligence inspired me to discuss the topic of Sexual Abuses and Gender Based Violence against the women and children in order to raise awareness and also to condemn prejudice, injustice and atrocities committed against children and women in armed conflict.

Moreover, I will use empirical evidence based on personal experience to explain the crises of gender and sexual violence against the children and women and to what extend should the United Nations such as UNICEF, Save the Children and Human Rights Watch Group intervene to help the vulnerable groups of people who are subjected to cruel treatment by the rebel groups as well as government armed forces.
