On the Backs of Women

It is a shameful reality that women -- who birth children, raise families, cultivate society, and support communities as a whole -- are frequently the victims of horrific war crimes including rape and mutilation. "On the backs of women", contrasts the violence many women endure with their inherent capacity to bring forth life. I look forward to the time when women's bodies are not used as currency for control and domination.
