This film shows how the rape of women was systematically organised and premeditated by not only by the “caliphate” but also by Assad’s regime. These women’s stories are painful to hear. Held in basements and prisons and repeatedly raped by their captors for having committed “crimes,” such as participating in peaceful demonstrations, they have nowhere to turn. Women who have been raped or suspected of having been raped are not only stigmatized and excluded but they can also be killed, including bymembers of their family.
