    If you read that piece carefully, Gloria Steinem and Lauren Wolfe aren’t actually asking if we can end rape as a weapon of war. They’re asking if we can end the rape of women as a weapon of war. This is a rather important distinction to make, because opinion pieces like the one you linked are the reason why none of the rape victims in that Guardian piece could get help. It’s why none of the UN organisations or aid agencies so much as mention they exist let alone actually helping them.
