the shame of the war

by United Nations OCHA/IRIN on 17-03-2013

The Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN) has launched The Shame of War: Sexual Violence Against Women and Girls in Conflict-a reference book and photo essay of portraits and testimonies of the sexual violence women suffer when men go to war. It examines the scope and nature of this violence and looks at the different ways the international community is addressing sexual violence against women and girls during and after conflict.

Women prisoners have been subjected to torture by electrocution, beatings, and rape by the investigators during interrogation. They had also been raped by the police and by the officers escorting them during the transfer to the women's prison in Baghdad.
