Öffentliche Abendveranstaltung zur Eröffnung der nicht öffentlichen SVAC-Konferenz "'Against Our Will' – Forty Years After: Exploring the Field of Sexual Violence in Armed Conflict".

In 1975, at the peak of the Women’s and Student Movement and against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Susan Brownmiller’s path-breaking analysis about rape in war and peace appeared. Against Our Will , one of "100 most important books of the 20th Century" (New York Public Library), inspired feminist activism and research and opened the door to questions that are still pressing today. While sexual violence has gained public awareness and become a subject in national and international politics, efforts to understand and strategies to prevent this form of violence remain inadequate. The presence of Susan Brownmiller opens up the opportunity to reflect on the current state of the art.
