Women constitute more than 50 percent of our world’s inhabitants. Generally, after conflict and warfare, they become the majority in any country’s population as a result of the loss or disappearance of males. Most experiences of women of all ages in wars and armed conflicts are similar to those of males. They experience the same trauma and pain; they may be murdered and displaced against their will and experience problems of living in conflict affected areas, but there are important differences that cannot be ignored (United Nations, 2002).
