I read one measly book in April. The subject matter of the book was so intense, I couldn’t read a lot at one time. I’d read half of it before and just now picked it back up. It’s rough, no need to make it more palatable.
War is Not Over When It’s Over is a collection of women’s stories from post-conflict zones. As you can expect, war demolishes more than just the physical landscape of a place. So many tales of rape, brutality and injustice go unreported after a war is supposedly over. Really hard to read but really worthwhile. It’s bad enough that sexual violence exists; we shouldn’t make it worse by ignoring the problem.
