The first part of the book traces the influence of armed conflict on contemporary women’s activism, by combining an analysis of women’s personal histories with an analysis of structural and contextual factors. This critical analysis forms the basis of the second part of the book, which discusses several alternative forms of women’s activism rooted in indigenous practices
Combining a micro- and macro-level analysis to present a sound understanding of women’s activism post-conflict, this Come Hell or High Water is an invaluable resource for scholars, students, and today’s feminist activists.
