"Living on gold should be a blessing; instead it is a curse": mass rape and genocide by attrition in the democratic republic of the Congo
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Dominant narratives of war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Great Lakes region have emphasised the use of mass rape as a weapon of war that is primarily used against women. Georgina Holmes argues the need to go beyond this reductionist interpretation: mass rape is perpetrated against women, men and boys, and is an extreme form of violence against the community which effectively constitutes ‘genocide by attrition’.
