“Women are central to religious fundamentalist strategies, as they play a dual role both as reproducers of the community and as symbols of family, community and religious 'honour'. Religious fundamentalists seek to control the mobility and sexuality of women of their own community, and consider sexual attacks on women of other groups as one of the most effective strategies for dishonouring that community as a whole.”
