This article describes Pauline Nyiramasuhuko's role in the Rwandan genocide and her case before the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). It explores a woman's ability to be equally involved in atrocities by exploring Pauline's case. Her case challenges the myth than women, by their nature, are incapable of being warriors, and that somehow their roles as women and mothers prohibit them from planning or participating in depraved violence.
