Women are constantly forced to negotiate for their rights between family, community and the state. But situations of conflict, strife and unrest pose myriad different challenges to them and render their negotiations with these institutions extremely complex. To understand women's gendered roles, issues and problems in conflict zones, a two-day conference will be organized on 5-6th Feb. 2011 in Mumbai.

This two day conference will help in understanding women's gendered roles in conflict zones. Speakers who have been part of these political struggles will provide incisive insights into various subjects including:

*Militarisation, Insurgencies and Peace Movements
*Grassroot Struggles and Redefining Gender Roles
*Communal Violence and Post Conflict Situations
*The Way Forward
