Abstract

With its historical roots in the struggle for land and resources and the migration of ethnically diverse peoples, the Solomon Islands' crisis of 1998-2000 caused untold trauma and suffering for many people. Because of their gendered position in society, however, women were arguably more adversely impacted by the conflict than men. Many women were raped by members of both warring parties and many felt guilt and hopelessness when the social and economic impacts of the conflict restricted their ability to fulfill traditional gender roles and responsibilities.
