2 comments on “The invisible war

  1. Thanks for this Derek. I watched The Invisible War several weeks ago and while impressed, I was also haunted by what was absent – the connections between rape in the military and rape in war. not once was there any mention or connection to rape perpetrated by US soliders in Afghanistan and Iraq. I’ll be writing on this very thing in the very near future.

  2. Thanks Cristina — I agree that’s a striking (perhaps the film-makers would claim it’s also a “strategic”) absence; as I noted in my original post, it’s also a striking absence from all the reviews I’ve been able to track down. I’m really pleased you’re writing about this, so please do keep in touch.
