The MeToo hashtag is still racing along like a runaway train threatening to expose men who need to subjugate women in order to feel any personal self worth.

Their under-privileged lives marked by ethnic cleansing do not make their experiences less valid.

The United Nations Security Council states that "women and girls are particularly targeted by the use of sexual violence, including as a tactic of war to humiliate, dominate, instil fear in, disperse and/or forcibly relocate civilian members of a community or ethnic group".

It is what the Serb forces inflicted upon an estimated 50,000 Bosnian Muslim women in the 1990s as part of their ethnic cleansing campaign.

Skye Wheeler, emergencies researcher for the Women's Rights Division at Human Rights Watch has been documenting rape survivors' stories in the Rohingya refugee camps.

UN doctors have seen high numbers of women with injuries consistent with violent sexual attacks arriving at refugee camps.
