Abstract: »Like Martín-Lucas, Ananya Jahanara Kabir discusses representations of rape in Southeast Asia, but from a different angle. In 'Double Violation? (Not) Talking about Sexual Violence in Contemporary South Asia', Kabir focuses on a different question about silence. Analyzing a variety of texts including public speeches, newspaper articles, modern art and Bapsi Sidhwa's 1989 novel Ice Candy Man (published as Cracking India in the US), the chapter ponders whether remaining silent is actually more positive for women whose testimony is reiterated in what Kabir calls a 'second violation'.« (Source: Zoë Brigley Thompson and Sorcha Gunne. »Introduction: Feminism without Borders: The Potentials and Pitfalls of Retheorizing Rape.« Feminism, Literature and Rape Narratives: Violence and Violation Edited by Sorcha Gunne et al.
