Describe the relationship between warfare and sexual violence. How do the two intersect in times of conflict?
Rape has been used as a weapon of war for centuries, and continues to be a tactic for inducing fear and establishing dominance. Sexual violence and war parallel in their very terminologies: penetration, invasion, ravage, violate, defile, breach, assault, raze. Sexual violence in times of conflict has long been considered inevitable collateral damage, as if soldiers release their tension by raping anyone they might come across. The reality is that sexual violence is used intentionally and strategically. The intersection of warfare and sexual violence assists in clearly defining how rape is used to intimidate and terrorize. The objective of sexual violence, exactly like warfare, is to control the victim. Understanding how sexual violence and war parallel in strategy and intent sheds light on accountability in a culture of victim blame.
