A conversation with Dr. Nusrat Rabbee, author of War Heroines Speak: The Rape of Bangladeshi Women in 1971 War of Independence. During this dialogue, Dr. Rabbee discussed the use of rape as a weapon of genocide in the war of 1971, and how it impacted not only the women, but also society in post-war Bangladesh. Dr. Rabbee also explored where women’s rights and status are currently in Bangladesh, and what is currently being done to acknowledged gender-based violence in the country. She also discussed how the events of 1971 connect to the movement to end gender-based violence today, across the world and in the United States.
