Christina Lamb has worked in war and combat zones for over thirty years and tells the unheard stories of women in conflict, exposing how in modern warfare rape is used by armies, terrorists and militias as a weapon to humiliate, terrify and carry out ethnic cleansing. Though rape was formalised as an international war crime in 1919, the International Criminal Court has convicted no one. This powerful new book calls on us to listen and to act against this the world's most neglected war crime. Speaking to survivors first-hand across four continents, Lamb encounters astonishing suffering and bravery of women in war and meets those fighting for justice.
