Abstract

Armed conflicts in many parts of the globe have a major detrimental influence on many aspects of life, particularly in the affected areas. The destiny of women in armed conflict scenarios, as well as their survival techniques, was investigated in this research. The chapter employed feminist and psychoanalytical theories to examine the unpleasant experiences of women in conflict zones by analyzing two female novels, Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Adichie and Forest Dames by Adaokere Agbasimalo. It revealed that the armed conflict had far-reaching and terrible consequences for women and children. The study, therefore, recommends that women are better positioned to write about their life experiences that leave an everlasting mark.
