Interview with Christina Lamb about her book Our Bodies Their Battlefield: What War Does To Women. Describes the past and present of rape as a weapon of war, from the fates of Yazidi and Rohingya woman at the hands of IS and the Burmese military to the German victims of the Red Army and the Disappeared of the Argentinian Junta. Discusses why rape as a weapon of war is so little reported or discussed, let alone prosecuted, how it happens, what it means – and why it’s seemingly on the increase even as wealthy western liberals congratulate themselves on the success of the #metoo movement.
