Mass rapes have been committed against people particularly women, in many areas in the world, both in times of war and peace.Yet,rape is not explicitly subsumed under the category of the prohibited acts of the crime of genocide under the Genocide Convention. This lack of explicit reference creates uncertainty as to treating rape as a potential conduct of genocide. However,this book thoroughly illustrates how rape can be used as a means to commit genocide!
