Arms to fight, arms to protect

While the impacts of armed conflict the world over have a shocking familiarity – death, disability, rape, displacement, family separation and economic destruction – women’s experiences are not uniform.

In this book, women from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Tigray (Ethiopia), Uganda, Somaliland, Liberia, Sri Lanka, India, Vietnam, Lebanon, Bosnia and Croatia speak of the psychological and physical damage of war, and the battle for economic survival.

This collection of testimonies reveals the wide diversity of women’s views and experiences.
