Abstract: »This paper offers an interpretation about sexual violence against women on republican rearguard during the Spanish Civil War. This kind of violence has been included in what some researchers have called “sexed violence”, a group of specific types of violence destined exclusively to women. Through the study of the case of Piedad Suárez de Figueroa Moya, we are going to analyse sexual violence wreaked on republican rearguard as a part of revolutionary violence and strategy of political cleansing carried out by unlawful republican committees. We are trying to go beyond the interpretation of war rape as a conquest of territory through the body of the enemy’s women. And finally we are going to introduce a political view of these rapes that turns victims into enemies.« (Source: Historia Actual Online)
