Displacing War Mythology and Developmental Logic
This concluding chapter remarks on two photos of women representing the aftermath of civil war. One is an image of victims of sexual violence while the other is a picture of a young woman with either one or both of her limbs amputated. The chapter states that both of these representations have typically been employed to raise awareness about the ways that civilians were impacted and victimized by the civil war. Furthermore, they signal that women's bodies are stained with the legacies of the conflict. Thus, the reproduction of these images is one of the political choices that serve to reconstruct women in a distinct way post-conflict.
