Abstract

Catharine MacKinnon, as is widely known, has instituted a civil lawsuit against Radovan Karadzic, the leader of the Bosnian Serbs, for genocidal acts of rape, forced pregnancy, enforced prostitution, other forms of torture, and extrajudicial killings. I fully support this action, as do the women's groups with which I work and, presumably, all feminist organizations in Croatia and the rest of the world, including those in Belgrade. We all are working to have war rape recognized and prosecuted as a war crime and to expose the inadequate recognition and treatment of these violations of women's human rights under current international and national laws.
