Internally displaced women represents the epitome of the marginalization and the disenfranchisement of the dislocated in South Asia. Their identity and individuality are collapsed into the homogeneous category of 'victim' and community, devoid of agency, unable and incapable of representing herself, powerless and superfluous.

The displaced are often stigmatised and also viewed with suspicion and hostility in the areas where they take shelter. They are vulnerable to acts of violence and human rights violations,...
