Rape is shredding Syria’s social fabric

As stated in the article, “rape and other forms of sexualized violence have long been used as a tool of war to destroy not only individual bodies but entire communities.” We have seen rape used as a tool of war by South Sudan soldiers, during the Rwandan genocide, and now in Syria. By highlighting these injustices we can bring a voice to those forcibly silenced.
