Summary/Abstract: 14th December 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Dayton Peace Accords (DPA, Dayton, or the Accords). This book analyses the period of war in Bosnia which shaped the Dayton Peace Accords, and subsequently the period of peace in Bosnia which was shaped by the Accords, through the prism of gender equality. The central theme of the book is the role of women in political life in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war and during the period of peace that followed. Fifteen women who contributed to political life in Bosnia and Herzegovina through their work and activism during this period were interviewed in July 2015. Their experience, knowledge, and perseverance are what made progress in the field of Bosnian female politics possible.
