Rape is a weapon of war and the sooner that international courts, laws and jurisdictions realize that the better off women will be.

These criminals should be violently and gruesomely executed.

These crimes are too often overlooked during and after times of war. It somewhat reassuring to see such attention paid to these gruesome acts now but more needs to be done and more need to speak out.

This is proof that women are the ones who will help women. We're not going to get anything done unless do it ourselves and stick by each other.

It is truly inspiring to see the courage that these women show by speaking up and speaking out against these atrocities. Sad to see that it is still such a taboo even in America and so underreported. Perhaps this will inspire more women in America to report rape when it happens to them. It is time for the world to stop condoning rape and start acting!

There is no great violence than rape and it should be punished as such. I admire these women for having the courage to speak out.

I'm glad this is getting coverage in the press. More people need to be aware of these atrocities.

These women are the strongest and most courageous in the world. They will survive, and probably surpass us all someday.

It's sickening what people can do to each other. I hope these courts send a strong message by locking the guilty up and throwing away the key.

also see this support group. The problem that isnt being highlighted is the fact that police are complicit and often engage in the same brutality
