Rape of women during wartime

Sponsored link.

Quotations:

bullet"Women have been ravished in Zion,  and virgins in the towns of Judah." Hebrew Scriptures, Lamentations 5:11. New International Version.
 
bulletFor I [God] will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses looted and the women raped; half the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Zechariah 14:2, from the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament)
 
bullet"I was playing jump-rope in front of my house when an automobile pulled over. I had never seen a car before in my village. When the driver offered me a ride, I, curious and naive, climbed in with my friend. Immediately, that car rolled on with us in it and then kept on going and going, never returning me to my village...." Ms. Kim Yoon Shim, a former "comfort woman," (sex-slave) about her abduction at the age of 14 by the Japanese military." 1

Rape during wartime:

Whenever there is an unbalance of power, the potential for rape increases. This is true particularly during the chaos of wartime.

Rape during wartime appears to have gone through three main stages: rape as a routine and expected reward to the victors, random rape due to lack of military discipline, and systematic rape as a military technique to demoralize the opposition.

Topics covered in this section:

bulletRape throughout history: Ancient times until World War II
 
bulletRapes during recent wars; International law, courts, books and articles
 
bullet Allegations of sexual slavery of "Comfort women" in the Japanese Army before during and after World War II
