Abstract

The pervasive sexual violence against women in today’s civil armed conflicts has included some of the most brutal raping and torturing ever witnessed in modern times. This paper defines and gives examples of this “extreme war rape”; puts forth a “domains model” for understanding it; and, focusing on two of the three model domains, provides supportive data from 30 civil-war-torn states with ongoing or recently-ended armed civil conflicts.
The model itself includes prior perspectives on war rape that target military and civilian patriarchies (the first domain) and gender inequalities (part of the second domain). It adds to the gender inequalities perspective by examining women’s poor socio-economic status within a general pattern of internal collapse and external contributors to it, and it introduces in the third domain conditions of war unique to or particularly prominent in today’s civil armed conflicts. The paper addresses issues in the second domain, but focuses most heavily on conditions of civil wars – high death tolls, especially of civilians; uprooting of the population, especially women and children; battle site ubiquity; accessible and diverse weaponry, and multiple combatant groups – that, I argue, contribute to or contextualize extreme war rape so prominent in today’s civil armed conflicts.
