Democratic 2020 U.S. presidential candidates and Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders speak after the seventh Democratic debate at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, January 14, 2020. The two candidates have engaged in a days-long feud stemming from a private conversation they had in December 2018. Warren has said Sanders told her he did not believe a woman could be elected president, a comment that Sanders has denied making. The dispute intensified after the debate, when CNN aired previously unreleased audio of the two speaking. Warren, ignoring Sanders' offer to shake hands, said, "I think you just called me a liar on national TV." Sanders responded that Warren, in fact, had called him a liar but said they should discuss the incident another time. REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton

A 17-year-old girl, who said she was raped by her friend, sits with other women at La Maison Rose, a shelter for women and girls who have fled abuse, rape, forced marriage and other trauma in Dakar, Senegal, a country where rape was a misdemeanor and not a crime. Widely publicized cases of rape in Senegal paved the way for the change in the law. After a unanimous vote in parliament to criminalize rape, President Macky Sall signed the decree into law on Jan. 10. Previously, rape drew a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and campaigners say convictions were rare. The new law sets a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of life. Picture taken January 7, 2020.
