Abstract: »The American-Viet Nam war has been more mythologised than almost any other conflict of the 20th century. But in all the books, films and television documentaries about Viet Nam, little has been heard of the experiences of Vietnames women, least of all their experiences of organised sexual violence. 25 years on, Madi Gilkes went to Viet Nam to find out about this hidden history from the women who lived it.« (Source: Trouble & Strife)
