This reference book and photo essay examines the scope and nature of the sexual violence women suffer when men go to war and looks at the different ways the international community is addressing it. Above all, the aim of this book is to inform, to shock and to join the voices saying Enough!” The 137-page book's primary focus is on sexual crimes in war, their impact on women's lives, and includes harrowing personal testimonies from raped and abused women who have had the courage to speak out about their experiences.
