What Happened to the Women? - Gender and Reparations for Human Rights Violations, Paperback / softback Book

What Happened to the Women? - Gender and Reparations for Human Rights Violations Paperback / softback

Part of the Advancing Transitional Justice series

Paperback / softback

Description

What happens to women whose lives are affected by human rights violations?

What happens to their testimony in court or in front of a truth commission?

Women face a double marginalization under authoritarian regimes and during and after violent conflicts.

Yet reparations programs are rarely designed to address the needs of women victims.

What Happened to the Women? Gender and Reparations for Human Rights Violations emphasizes the necessity of a gender dimension in reparations programs to improve their handling of female victims and their families.

A joint project of the International Center for Transitional Justice and Canada's International Development Research Centre, What Happened to the Women? includes studies of gender and reparations policies in Guatemala, Peru, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Timor-Leste.

Contributors represent a wide range of fields related to transitional justice and include international human rights lawyers, members of truth and reconciliation commissions, and NGO representatives.
