A woman holds a wooden cross during a prayer session at Tomping Presbyterian Church after taking part in a silent march with women from more than forty South Sudanese womens organisations through the city to express the frustration and suffering that women and children face in Juba, South Sudan on December 9, 2017. 
Almost 1000 protesters participated, most of them covering their mouths with tape, as part of a 16 day activity with the theme End The War.
