"From Rwanda and Bosnia to Myanmar and Tigray, rape is now recognized as a genocidal crime. Yet its survivors rarely receive the health care they need—thanks to America’s deadly culture war."

Featured in The New York Review of Books is a piece by writer Jill Filipovic and VII’s Nichole Sobecki. Reported together over three years in 4 different countries, their project documents how US abortion politics distort women’s lives in conflict zones.
