This collection of essays for students and general readers examines violence against women during and after episodes of genocides of the 20th and 21st centuries. Chapters are united by a framework for comparative analysis to compare women’s experiences across time and space, analyzing narratives, memoirs, testimonies, and representations in literature of women as victims, as survivors, and as advocates helping other female victims. Material is presented in chronological chapters, from the Armenian genocide and the European Holocaust through the Khmer Rouge, Central America, the Middle East, Rwanda, Kosovo, and Gujarat. For classroom use, the book features historical overviews of each period and critical thinking questions. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
