This introductory chapter briefly introduces the authors and the chapters that follow, while pulling out some of the themes that cut across the chapters. Rape and other forms of sexual violence happen to all women, all over the world. No group of women is immune from the acts or fear of sexual violence. While rape may be condoned in many areas of the world, it is often actively promoted in war and conflict zones. Until all women are free, none will be free.
