Supporting Yazidi Women

Since 2014, ISIS has killed or kidnapped more than 10,000 Yazidi men, women, and children in a genocide that needs decisive action by the international community. Mothers have been separated from their children. Women were sold as slaves, and many remain captive. Communities have been broken. One of The MATCH Fund’s newest partners documents and archives the stories of unspeakable violence endured by Yazidi women and girls. The purpose is threefold: to highlight the experiences of women survivors of sexual violence and the scale of the crimes committed against the Yazidi people, to bring the perpetrators to justice, possibly through action by the International Criminal Court; and to fight tirelessly on behalf of the Yazidi people still in danger.
