This chapter serves as an introduction to the book as a whole. “This book shows the manifold ways in which women are victimized under authoritarian regimes and during violent conflict . . . . the starting point of the quest that motivates this book is the need to redress a history of double marginalization: the marginalization of victims within the framework of the larger debates that take place in transitional and post-conflict societies, and within it, the marginalization of women.”
