JAMWA

Abstract

The documentation of a systematic campaign of rape against women by warring factions is an important step in the recognition of the such behavior as criminal and punishable as a war crime. We must raise our voices in support of these women and demand an end to such atrocities. Unless these acts of war are punished severely they will not stop and are likely to escalate. we need a strategy for prevention. Rape of women and children by armed men must be defined as a heinous act of violence and cowardice. For the first step in prevention, systematic prosecution and punishment of military leaders for rap policies as well as punishment of rapists themselves must become part of international law.
