Elise Feron's path-breaking research makes a powerful case for why wartime sexual violence against men should never be exceptionalised, and how it is a likely outcome of the patriarchal, violent and heteronormative world we inhabit. Written with great passion, nuance, sensitivity and intellectual rigour, it addresses a relatively understudied topic. A must-read for all academics and policymakers interested in understanding and finding solutions to wartime sexual violence.
