Executive Summary

“A Woman’s War” explores the post-conflict experiences and struggles of women who played a frontline role in Bangladesh’s liberation struggle of 1971, and who have, since the war’s end, not only had to struggle for equal rights and recognition, but also for their dignity, honor, and idea of womanhood.
