Is rape in the Congo a weapon of war?

I have a new piece on rape in the Congo up over at the Atlantic. In the piece, I discuss new pieces of research that challenge some of the prevailing narratives about rape and war in the DRC.

I agree with you. What we're seeing is the deterioration of the fabric of society in DRC. Given years of enslavement, exploitation, brutality, and violence, the entire country is traumatized. Add to that unabated greed for its enormous natural resources and a negligent, self-serving government, and you get a shark fest with women and children the victims.
