Sandra Ka Hon Chu, Dr. Anne-Marie de Brouwer and photographer Samer Muscati released The Men Who Killed Me: Rwandan Survivors of Sexual Violence (that link is to the book’s website, much more than just an ordering link) in 2009.  Recently, Sandra and Anne-Marie reinterviewed some of the women and contributed an amazing three part post to the website IntlawGrrls. Part 1 is here, part 2 here and part 3 is here.  Recommended, if difficult, reading about legal processes in post-conflict societies.

Sandra is an Osgoode LLM grad who works as a Sr. policy analyst at the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network.  You can read more about Sandra and Anne-Marie here.
