Abstract

Given the lack of educational and economic prospects, joining the rebel group is not just an economic but also a moral and ideological incentive for many women in Bodo Territorial Area Districts of Assam. Anwesha Dutta examines the stories of women recruits, the impact of AFSPA and the results of sexual violence in the region.
