Gender-based sexual violence during conflict is not inevitable but is nearly ubiquitous. A crime that remains misunderstood, difficult to prevent, undercounted, and often goes unpunished, it has long-term consequences for entire communities. Women, who are not the sole victims of sexual violence, are the leading advocates for recognition and justice through their domestic and transnational networks. The case of Kosovo illustrates the successes and the limitations of their mobilization.
