Executive Summary

Women, War and Peace in South Asia examines the many different experiences women have of conflict in this region. Rita Manchanda shifts the focus away from the victimhood discourse (such as The Grieving Mother) and explores women's agency for both peace and conflict. The book is structured around six narratives of women negotiating violent politics in their everyday lives.
