Refugee Women should be required reading for all those who care deeply about the challenges confronting refugee and displaced women, and who seek sensitive and thoughtful solutions. Susan Martin's highly informative treatment of the issues is exemplary no less for its scope and depth than for its ability to bring home to the reader the reality of the refugee experience for the women and girls who live it. -- Karen Musalo, University of California, Hastings College of the Law
A masterful look at the plight of refugees and internally displaced persons with an emphasis on the special problems and needs of women...an extremely valuable and enlightening book. * Phoebe: Journal Of Gender and Cultural Critiques *
A masterful, well documented and sensitive analysis of both the progress made in the past ten years in addressing the problems uprooted women face, and the gaps that remain: continuing gender discrimination, sexual violence, and a dearth of reproductive health care, education and employment opportunities. As few others have done, the study exposes the exploitation of refugee and internally displaced women by local authorities, international peacekeepers and even aid agencies. The recommendations are well thought through, sensible and based on direct fieldwork - a must for policy makers, practitioners and the concerned international public. -- Roberta Cohen, codirector of The Brookings Institution; University of Bern Project on Internal Displacement
