Summary This book provides a nuanced understanding of an often neglected aspect of armed conflicts, namely the everyday structures that sustain lives during crises and, specifically, care-work performed by women. It showcases the work of women as key protagonists and stresses their role as knowledge producers in studies of conflict. The author brings an original voice to the literature on women in conflict and peace-building showing the unpaid and less visible care-work that women do in the context of conflict and post-conflict and peacebuilding in Africa. Fatma Osman Ibnouf is Assistant Professor at University of Khartoum, Sudan
