A Women's Media Center initiative,  Women Under Siege is documenting and advocating against sexualised violence in conflict. Spearheaded by Gloria Steinem, this initiative explores historical evidence that sexualised violence occurred in wars from the Holocaust to the present day. In the belief that understanding what happened in the past might have helped us to prevent or to prepare for the mass sexual assaults of other conflicts, from Bosnia to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, WMC's Women Under Siege is working to heighten public consciousness of causes and preventions.
