How many rapes are too many in war? Of course, one violent sexual attack on a woman is one too many. A single incident could be a war crime....

Valmathi Jegadas is a different sort of mine clearer to the testosterone-fuelled explosives specialists portrayed in the 2008 Oscar-winning Hollywood hit, The Hurt Locker. A farmer's wife in northern Sri Lanka, Jegadas, 37, earns 200 dollars a month risking her life, and she admits being scared each time she steps into the minefields that are a legacy of the island's long and bloody civil war.
After the war, one of the few jobs available is clearing explosives.
The women are taking back war-torn northern Sri Lanka, one square metre at a time.
