Warfare always takes a heavy toll on civilians, and never more so than when rape is used by armies and terrorists as a weapon to humiliate, oppress, and carry out ethnic cleansing. Speaking to survivors first-hand, the coauthor of I Am Malala encounters the suffering and bravery of women in war and meets those fighting for justice. Surveying Japan's "comfort women" of World War II, the outrages of the Rwandan genocide, and ISIL's enslavement of the Kurds, Christina Lamb introduces the Bosnian women who have hunted down more than 100 war criminals, the Aleppo beekeeper rescuing Yazidis, and the Congolese doctor who has risked his life to treat more rape victims than anyone else on earth.
