Aid agency CAFOD's photographic exhibition highlighting the issue of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The images and words of 50 women affected by sexual violence from the Eastern region of DRC will be on show at Morley before touring the UK for 12 months.

The BBC's award-winning foreign affairs correspondent Mike Thomson who spoke at the exhibition launch said: "These pictures are amazing and each one shows the courage of the women in Congo. These women must be applauded for standing up and being counted."

Human rights campaigner Lord Alton of Liverpool also added his support to the exhibition. He said: "The pain and suffering that is evident in the images on that walltell their own story and it's often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. This exhibition is an extraordinary achievement."
