Marabia Enduring Impunity

The stories of ten women who suffered after the Marabia incident are told here. They were detained, interrogated and tortured. They lost family members, were forced to ‘entertain’ Indonesian soldiers, were raped and sexually humiliated. Two of them also involved as the researcher team. They encouraged other women to be involved in this research process, sharing their participation in the resistance work and their effort to survive severe torture. Their story underscores the potential for women victims to use their experiences in a positive way to help others.
