Abstract

During the 1994 Rwandan genocide, women were subjected to sexual violence on a massive scale. These crimes were perpetrated by members of the infamous Hutu militia groups known as the Interahamwe, other civilians, and soldier of the Rwandan Armed Forces. Administrative, military and political leaders as well as heads of militia, directed or permitted the killings and sexual violence in an effort to further their political goals, and therefore bear responsibility for these abuses. Shattered Lives documents the widespread rape of women during the genocide. [Back Cover]
