Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the history of the civil war in El Salvador, outlines what actions were available to campesina women during the war, and examines how those possible actions changed over time and across people’s life courses. It defines four spaces (pre-war village, refugee camp, repopulation and FMLN guerrilla camp) and three roles (guerrilla, collaborator, and non-participant) available to rural Salvadoran women in the 1980s.

Keywords:   History, El Salvador, FMLN, Civil War, Refugee Camp, Repopulation, Guerrilla, Collaborator, Women, Campesino/Campesina
