Sexualized violence in conflict: Jewish and non-Jewish women

We ran through a dozen other stories of women like Begum and Abeja, and finally realized that it would be too difficult to find the right one — the tale that would express exactly how and in what ways sexualized violence is being used as a weapon of war to devastate women and tear apart communities around the world, conflict by conflict, from Libya to the Democratic Republic of Congo. It has been used before with non-jews and jewish women as well. 

  •  Rape stories out of the Congo, Bosnia and Sudan became part of these conflict narratives
  • Sexual violence during the Spanish Inquisition and  Holocaust , though, has not been widely discussed
  • It wasn’t part of Nazi policy, but some say stories — no matter how raw  — need to be heard
    But the issue raises concerns among others who’d rather leave the subject alone

We are calling to attenting by bring stories happening now and then. 



  • The husband who rejects a woman who has been brutalized isn’t a man either.

  • Rape of women will not cease until foundation texts determine women are equal under  Secular and Religious Law;  and in Reality  are entitled to say ‘No’.
  •  At the moment we have Religious texts misinterpreted and their secular reflections determining they(women) cannot say ‘No’.

  • ‘Freedom of Religion’ is clearly failing to deliver security and well-being to women time it was reviewed.
