Two women in Gulu, Uganda whose lips have been cut off by Lord's Resistance Army rebels


Original caption states:

Two women share a laugh in Gulu. Both had their lips cut off by rebels—a punishment commonly inflicted on women who are washing clothes, looking for firewood or food, or doing other chores in the vicinity of the camps. This photograph is a part of an exhibit to begin August 22 in the Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C.
