In his sights: Kate Brennan (not her real name) will never forget the day she met the charming man in the blue silk shirt. Their relationship lasted three years. For the next 15 years, he's made her pay for leaving him. 'Stalked' is the name of her book, and it's about exactly that: what it's like to be stalked no matter what you do or where you move.

No joke: Bun Heang Ung was a political cartoonist in Cambodia. He still is, but now lives in Australia because the Cambodian regime threatened his life - this after surviving the genocidal Khmer Rouge. He tells Jonathan why he's never going to stop.

*** Africa in Progress ***

'Wanted! African women lawyers'
It's not that male lawyers are incompetent, but women who've been victims of sexual violence just feel more at ease telling their often traumatic stories to female lawyers. Most victims of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the cases currently before the International Criminal Court are women from Africa. Yet just a handful among the lawyers entitled to represent them are African women. That's why the court has launched a campaign to hire more women lawyers. In this edition, we hear how women lawyers can make a difference.
