Electing to Rape: Sexual Terror in Mugabe's Zimbabwe

In the weeks immediately following the June 2008 presidential
elections in Zimbabwe, AIDS-Free World received an urgent call from a
Harare-based organization working on behalf of women and girls. They
believed that hundreds and possibly thousands of women had been raped
by members of President Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party as a strategy to
influence the election, and sought help from AIDS-Free World in
documenting these crimes.
