SDG 10: Reduced inequalities, SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions
Bentiu, South Sudan: As soon as I blow the starting whistle, 12 women crash into me, one after the other, hitting as hard has any man ever could. When the stampede passes I see 50 women tearing off into the distance down the back road of the Bentiu protection of civilians (POC) camp in Unity State, South Sudan. Instead of running for their lives, these women were running free in the inaugural Bentiu community fun run.
