Women, Violence and War

I just found the webcast from a 2005 conference on war and gender.  I share it because there is discussion about rape as a weapon of war. This still happens today in the DR Congo, and I’m sure it still exists in other parts of the world as well.

Does the idea of rape as an act of war surprise you? Rape is always about power and control, whether used in war or not.

Here is the link to the conference recordings: In the War Zone.
