From Sonya to icouldhavelied, this article memed itself to me.

Most of it's about the brutality of the rape and slaughter of women
in Rwanda in a few months of 1994, and the role the female minister
of women's rights had to play. But around page seven, there's the
incredible background that led to this. It's the sort of thing
that shows why it is things that seem innocuous, like registration,
and cartoons of women's sexuality (both intermixed with strong
connotations based on a perceived race) can lead to something so
brutal that it's hard to believe. I have exerpted that bit below,
but I recommend reading the full article.
