Many Americans assumed the women in the sexual violence at Abu Graib were just following orders and were victims of the system. I find that politically and intellectually lazy. Americans need to grow up and admit that as adults we are responsible for what we do, and so are soldiers in uniform. That does not mean that I fail to recognize that orders to engage in abuse came from above — I believe they did, and I would argue that all those involved in authorizing abuse at Abu Ghraib should also be held responsible.
It is true that many people in the military, men and women, are victims of sexual harassment. It is also true however, that sexual aggression is part of military culture and that historically the military has done much more to cover up sexual abuse by its members than to punish them. I also found in my research that the military is capitalizing on the growing presence of women in the armed forces and deploying tactics that involve using female sexuality as a weapon is one of the ways using women soldiers as women.

Women and war -- United States. Iraq War, -- Prisoners and prisons, American. Summary Combining an art project with critical commentary, Fusco imaginatively addresses the role of women in the war on terror and explores how female sexuality is being used as a weapon against Islamic terrorists.
Publisher's Weekly Review In this fascinating pastiche of text, performance and illustration, artist Fusco goes undercover at a military interrogation training camp, unearths confidential FBI memos and channels Virginia Woolf as she investigates the use of female sexual aggression as an interrogation tactic authorized by the Pentagon, called "Invasion of Space by a Female.
Why do the military and the CIA use female sexuality as an interrogation tactic, and why is this tactic downplayed and even ignored in internal investigations of prisoner abuse? Combining an art project with critical commentary, Coco Fusco imaginatively addresses the role of women in the war on terror and explores how female sexuality is being used as a weapon against suspected Islamic terrorists. Using details drawn from actual accounts of detainee treatment in US military prisons, Fusco conceives a field guide of instructional drawings that prompts urgent questions regarding the moral dilemma of torture in general and the use of female sexuality specifically.
