  Violence (Of State, Militarism, Family And 'Development') And Women's Health  
 


The 10th IWHM will grapple with the multiple ways in which segments of our population, women in particular, experience violence with deleterious consequences for their health, survival and well being.

 
   
  The 10th IWHM will examine the following:  
 

  • What is the impact of development policies on women's livelihoods and health?
  • How do growing militarisation, war, communal and ethnic conflicts affect women's health as well as reproductive and sexual rights?
  • What are women's countervailing struggles and strategies against all forms of violence -both in the private and public spheres?
