This collected volume focuses on women’s suffering and the
conditions of their societies during conflict and
post-conflict situations in Iraq, Iran, Syria and other
countries. The contributions examine and explore not only
general narratives but also various specific aspects of the
conflict and post-conflict situations in relation to the
roles and statuses of these women, with a number of scholars
reflecting on topics from various disciplines and key areas
such as the Middle East. This collection also includes some
articles on the suffering of women outside of the Middle
East, thus illustrating the similarity of some general
issues women have to face throughout the world.

Behnaz Hosseini is a researcher in religious
minorities and gender in the Middle East at the university
of Vienna.
