This book features the powerful personal narratives of women in the Bangsamoro, Philippines across generations, ethnic affiliations and social status. It highlights women as fighters, women as daughters of fighters, women as escapees, women as providers to their families and women as leaders. Their often harrowing but inspiring stories reveal how women have become one of the most significant advocates for peace, despite suffering through decades of conflict in Muslim Mindanao. The insights into their struggles, featured in this book, show how women's responses to the conflict vary and how their roles have been shaped during and after the conflict.
