An Ecological Examination of Rural Mozambican Women's Attainment of Postwar Wellbeing
Deacon, Zermarie; Sullivan, Cris
Journal of Community Psychology, v38 n1 p115-130 Jan 2010
Women's experiences of warfare and postwar recovery are qualitatively different from those of men. However, to date, the processes whereby women recover from the gendered impacts of war have not been sufficiently explored. In order to address this gap in the literature and to inform policies and services aimed at women recovering from warfare, a qualitative investigation was conducted of the process whereby women in one rural community in northern Mozambique attained wellbeing in the wake of war. Findings indicate that factors at all levels of the socio-ecological system were significant in supporting women's attainment of postwar wellbeing. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
