Event Description:

The twelve essays in Gender Violence in Peace and War present a continuum of cases where the state enables violence against women—from state-sponsored torture to lax prosecution of sexual assault. Reports from war zones often note the obscene victimization of women, who are frequently raped, tortured, beaten, and pressed into sexual servitude.

Yet this reign of terror against women not only occurs during exceptional moments of social collapse, but also during peacetime.  As this powerful book argues, violence against women should be understood as a systemic problem—one for which the state must be held accountable.
