*Sexual And Gender-Based Violence Against Children In Armed Conflict,  
Office of the United Nations Special Representative of the 
Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, 2006*:  There is 
still little awareness of the extreme suffering that armed conflict 
inflicts on girls or the many roles girls are often forced to play 
during conflict and long after. Girls are often abducted for sexual and 
other purposes by armed groups and forces. They face a variety of 
threats, including rape and forced prostitution. The work of the Special 
Rapporteur on systematic rape, sexual slavery and slavery-like practices 
during armed conflict and that of the Special Rapporteur on violence 
against women have drawn attention to the human rights violations, 
including sexual slavery, which are perpetrated against women and girls 
in times of armed conflict.  More information at:
