    Sexual violence against women and girls is widespread in conflict and used as a war tactic. Reports from the Democratic Republic of the Congo on the extent of conflict-related sexual violence range from 18 to 40 per cent among women and girls and between 4 and 24 per cent among men and boys. Domestic violence, trafficking, child marriage, are also exacerbated during conflict.

During World War II, Jewish girls and women were forced into prostitution and raped by German soldiers, and German gentile girls and women were raped by Soviet soldiers.

    This book examines and discusses the ordeals that women face as violence is perpetrated against them in politically conflicted and militarized areas. In conflict zones, every act is affected by, dependent on and mobilised by militaristic values.   Throughout history, women and girls have often been targeted in wartime for violence, especially sexual violence. They have also been excluded from conflict .

    The United Nations Population Fund confirmed its support for the efforts of the Sudanese government in holding perpetrators of gender-based violence in conflict Zones accountable. The current report of the African Centre for Gender and Social Development provides a situation analysis of violence against women in Sudan combining it with information about the available legislative frameworks and legal institutions that could be used in order to combat it (p. ).
