Synopsis

The eleven-year civil war in Sierra Leone from 1991 to 2002



was incomprehensibly brutal-it is estimated that half of all



female refugees were raped and many thousands were killed.



While the publicity surrounding sexual violence helped to



create a general picture of women and girls as victims of the



conflict, there has been little effort to understand female soldiers'



involvement in, and experience of, the conflict. Female



Soldiers in Sierra Leone draws on interviews with 75 former



female soldiers and over 20 local experts, providing a rare



perspective on both the civil war and post-conflict development



efforts in the country. Megan MacKenzie argues that



post-conflict reconstruction is a highly gendered process,



demonstrating that a clear recognition and understanding



of the roles and experiences of female soldiers are central



to both understanding the conflict and to crafting effective



policy for the future.
