Abstract: »Pursuing this exchange in chapter 8, as it pertains to war rape in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Duska Andrić-Ružičić argues that rape is used as a strategy of war by the "other." In her experience, non-governmental organizations are the only institutions that have prioritized the treatment of women victims of violence.« (Wenona Giles. »Introduction: Feminist Exchanges and Comparative Perspectives across Conflict Zones.« Feminist under Fire: Exchanges across War Zones.
