Abstract: »Discusses how sexual violence against women is used for political means in traditional cultures such as those located in Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Algeria, and Afghanistan. The author claims that while gender-based terrorism is not new, increased media coverage during the 1990's heightened public awareness of its use.« (Source: Historical Abstracts)
