Mumbai: Feb 07, 2011
The structured sexual violence in conflict zones, apart from that wrought by the pursuit of the neo-liberal paradigm of development, causing a plunder of resources, displacement, distress and by age-old old caste practices was widely discussed at a two-day seminar in Mumbai titled ‘Negotiating Spaces: Gender Concerns Conflict Zones'. Speakers pointed to an increase in militarisation with upcoming development projects. “Whenever there is militarisation, the problems of women and children are the same,” said Helam Haokip of Women Against Sexual violence and State Repression, Manipur.
