Jenny Matthews has spent many years travelling the world and taking photographs. She has visited many countries affected by war including Nicaragua, Mozambique, Rwanda, Angola, Sierra Leone, El Salvador, Colombia, Afghanistan, Burma and Croatia. Most civilian casualties of war are women and children and this compelling photographic record forms a visual diary examining what happens to women when war goes on, and when it's over. The stunning photographs show the many roles women play: watching, avoiding, coping, confronting, participating; and the emotions they experience: anger, fear, despair, joy, hope, terror, anxiety, depression. The book is arranged in thematic chapters: women's relationship to war as mothers; living with violence; exile; the bearing of arms; the continuation of daily life; the traditional role of caring and mediating; the wider work opportunities afforded to women in times of war; the damage done to bodies and minds; the solitude of widowhood; life after war. Each photo has an accompanying dJessica Kingsley Publishers Inciary entry which provides the story behind the image, and throughout the book there are images which challenge the notion of truth and objectivity.
