In this book research focuses on a comparative analysis of the collective strategies employed by indigenous and peasant women to gain access to justice for the sexual violence and other human rights violations they suffered in the context of armed conflict and transition in Colombia and Guatemala. It documents the brutal persistence, over six centuries, of the close links between the forced displacement of indigenous people within their own territories, indigenous peoples’ dispossession of their land, and the rape of indigenous women, analyzing two major episodes of sexual violence against Guatemalan women from the Q’eqchí people, and the women’s struggles to achieve justice.
