Linking Arms: Women and war in Post-Yugoslav states
Korac, M. 1998. Linking Arms: Women and war in Post-Yugoslav states. Uppsala Life and Peace Institute.
Violence against women in war has been a prominent news story as this series of case studies developed. The systematic rape of women in Bosnia-Herzegovina, direct attacks upon women as part of the genocide in Rwanda, and the recently revealed stories of Korean and Filipino “comfort women” during the Second World War assaulted us with the vulnerability and dangers which women face in war-generated violence. However, such violence, although often in the news, is sadly only a fraction of the violent experiences of women and, as well, ignores the different and creative responses of women to resist gendered oppression.
