In this month’s issue of Al Jazeera’s “Squirm,” we look at the stories of women who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the terrifying effects of being on the receiving end of sexual assault, and the women and girls who have died as a result.
The stories are told by the women themselves and from their friends and families.
We also hear their stories and see their reactions.

The BBC’s “Al Jazeera World Service” is broadcast in English on BBC World News (WW) and in French on Radio France Internationale.
