Abstract

Emphasizing that women are not passive spectators to civil strife, a social scientist with the US Agency for International Development overviews issues in how government policies impact women and traditional gender relations. Other contributors present case studies of women's experiences and the empowerment role of women's organizations in such war-torn countries as Rwanda, Bosnia, Cambodia, El Salvador, and Guatemala. In the last couple of the nine papers, Kumar makes policy recommendations for the international community to strengthen women's organizations. Annotation c.
