Abstract

Helen Benedict has presented the lives and experiences of women caught in the web of history. Benedict’s Sand Queen shows how women from the Iraq war are in the unique position of being combat veterans and sexual assault survivors. Their sorrows are silenced in every way shaping them as fragile beings. They try hard to overcome the sexual assaults but are subjugated. Every progress of their life at war is underlined with the need for protection and freedom to exercise their identity. This paper traces the hardships, sufferings and mental warfare undergone by women during war. It also focuses on the sexual harassment of women soldiers in the military camp
