The women whose actions this paper addresses participated in a variety of conflicts (from Rwanda to the former Yugoslavia) at a variety of levels (from perpetration of sexual violence to leadership). It asks two (related but importantly distinct) questions about the gender dynamics of women{\textquoteright}s participation. First, it explores boh women{\textquoteright}s motivations for participation in sexual violence and narratives of their actual behavior to gain leverage in explaining women{\textquoteright}s violating other women. Second, it looks at how women{\textquoteright}s choices to engage in sexual violence are portrayed in media and scholarly accounts, looking for gender differences in consumption of women{\textquoteright}s violence in addition to its commission. The paper looks at these questions by exploring five cases of women{\textquoteright}s (alleged) commission of the war crime of genocidal rape. The paper concludes with a reformulated approach to the laws and norms against genocidal rape in the international community, taking account of women{\textquoteright}s roles in the crime not only as (often) victims but also as (sometime) perpetrators.
