Abstract

"Sexual Violence as a Weapon of War? Perceptions, Prescriptions, Problems in the Congo and Beyond." Maria Eriksson Baaz and Maria Stern. Zed Books. May 2013. --- Based on original fieldwork in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as research material from other conflict zones, Sexual Violence as a Weapon of War? aims to challenge the recent prominence given to sexual violence, bravely highlighting various problems with isolating sexual violence from other violence in war. The authors invite us to examine our own participation in Western aid efforts which have cast women solely as victims of rape, finds Katherine Williams.
