An Open Letter To Jeffrey Gettleman

Your article about the rape epidemic in the Congo brings awareness to a very important problem. However, I wondered the entire time whether this was Congo-Brazzaville or Congo-Kinshasa. Perhaps you assume that your readers have no idea where the Congo is anyway and didn't want to confuse them by specifying the Congo to which you were referring. Or, alternatively, most people know that Bukavu is in Congo-Kinshasa and I was the only person unaware. Either way, I would appreciate it if you would please specify which in the future. Nevertheless, this is a very minor criticism of your excellent article.

Sincerely,
FLG
