A century ago 90% of war casualties were male soldiers, now 90% are civilians, 80% of whom are women and children.http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2002/10/03/1033538723853.html …
In war “Women and girls are not just killed, they are raped, sexually attacked, mutilated and humiliated”
Females are often targeted to”terrorize, demean, ‘defeat’ entire communities, as well as to punish, intimidate and humiliate women’….
…’hundreds of thousands of women are trafficked annually for forced labor and sexual slavery…including to service western troops’.
Militarism means that ‘women are often the spoils of war, their deaths are considered collateral damage, their bodies are battlegrounds or commodities that can be traded’.
