Episode 5 – The Weaponization of Sexual Violence

In episode 5 of Beyond Fear: The Sex Crimes Podcast, Alexa and Alissa interview Dr. Nicole Fox, an assistant professor in the Criminal Justice Division at CSUS whose current research focuses on how post-genocide communities remember violence through the creation of national collective memories embodied in memorials and monuments. In “The Weaponization of Sexual Violence” we talk about rape as it is used during war and genocide.

At the 18:00 minute mark in this episode, Dr. Fox mentions an article that has the most accurate counts of the number of rapes that occurred during the Rwandan genocide. You can access that article by clicking here.

Dr. Fox’s forthcoming book Rising From the Ashes: Memory and Reconciliation in Rwanda After the Genocide is due out in the spring of 2021.

We recognize that every episode of this podcast can be difficult to digest, but episode 5 in particular is quite heavy. We caution that you listen with care.
