Haiti Earthquake: Sexual Assault (9 images)
In the wake of the January 2010 earthquake, sexual assaults in the camps for the displaced have skyrocketed. Many girls and women have ended up in insecure living arrangements and tight quarters with strangers, while many fathers, husbands, and brothers died.
