Milan Kundera said “The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.” It can also be said that the struggle of women against power is the struggle against being forgotten, of crimes against women considered a shame to bear in silent grief.
The work of the women & men of Kunan Poshpora collaborating with Kashmiri feminist & human rights activists is very different than the victimology of other agencies. They are changing the political approach to crimes against women & children (as well as men subjected to sexual torture). What they have to say is an invaluable education about exposing, educating, & campaigning against sexual violence under military occupation & in war.
