Feminist Minefields: The debate about Soviet mass rapes at the end of WWII and its implications.

July 8, 2021 - 4:00pm to 4:55pm
Zoom Webinar

The Soviet mass rapes in the eastern territories at the end of WWII is likely the largest attack against women that we know of in history. It is largely unknown by the general public and has not been claimed by feminist movements to be condemned or received justice.

Tinka Schubert, visiting scholar at The Europe Center 2019-2020, analyzes the debate about the Soviet mass rapes for the arguments, perspectives and strategies used by feminist scholars and society at large to provide insight on distinguishing a “feminist” critique that prevents us from advancing towards the goal of ending VAW from a constructive critique that helps feminist movements to progress.
