Kashmiri feminist & human rights activists & the women survivors of the 1991 mass rape in the villages of Kunan & Poshpora are playing a central role, along with the Mayan women of Guatemala, in exposing the issue of mass rape as a weapon of war. It is not an issue of sex-deprived soldiers running wild but of armies using mass rape as a weapon of domination & social control in war, occupation, & genocide.

This is a recent article in BBC about Kunan & Poshpora, the ongoing struggle for justice, & the importance of understanding rape as a weapon of war with shame adhering only to the occupying army & not to the survivors of their crimes.
