Rape as a Weapon of War
Rape being used as a weapon of war speaks volumes to how little women are valued in the world, to how men see them as merely objects to maim and mutilate just to prove a point or even for fun. This is a horrid, widespread problem, and not enough people understand the gravity of the situation; they don't realize how rape is a legitimately recognized weapon against communities and villages. This is a topic we want to learn more about because the reality of this issue is somewhat new to us as well; through our research, we can speak up and create awareness for those that don't have a voice.
