Mass Rape/Widespread Sexualized Violence

Women and men, boys and girls, within a group are raped or sexually violated in numbers and in ways significant enough to demonstrate an attempt to undermine a group’s ability to sustain itself and its culture. These forms of violence will usually be public, will involve pronounced life force atrocities and tortures, will demonstrate high rates of attack against the very young and the very old, and target key cultural symbols of the health of a community: for example, community political and religious leaders, important family relationships, and infants.
