Witness to Truth - Volume Three B (Chapter 3: Women and the Armed Conflict in Sierra Leone )

Women and the Armed Conflict in Sierra Leone

The Commission intends in this chapter to capture the experiences of both women and girls in respect of sexual violence, as well as their complete gendered experiences at a political, legal, health and social welfare level. While the majority of the women in Sierra Leone were victims, the Commission recognises that many women took on the role of perpetrators and / or collaborators, out of personal conviction or simply in order to survive.
