Airing on CARPE DIEM October 13th -17th , 2014
On this episode of Carpe Diem, Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey is joined by Carol Rittner, Distinguished Professor of Holocaust & Genocide Studies at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, and editor of the book Rape: Weapon of War and Genocide, as well as Lauren D’Imperio, a student of Montclair State University’s School of Communication and Media enrolled in the Digital Diplomacy course.
Sexual violence and gender-based crimes are not coincidental to war and conflict. They can’t be explained away as “boys will be boys” or “women are a spoil of war”. It‘s clear that rape and other sexual crimes are frequently a tactic, even a strategy, of genocide. In this episode, it is discussed in depth, why it has taken so long for both law and popular culture to realize that women are not just victims, but the targets in genocide.
This episode was produced and hosted by Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey, and directed by TVDM major, Michael Biondi.
