Explores the economic coping practices of rural widows in the aftermath of the Cambodian civil war, exploring their access to key economic resources. This book concludes that although Cambodia's gender arrangement offered many economic options to widows, it also devalued their labour in a cultural structure of inequality.



War decimated widows' family support networks, including the loss of children, their social security. The study concludes that Cambodia's gender arrangement offered many economic options to widows but also devalued their labor in a cultural structure of inequality. Gender, poverty, and war interacted to reduce widows' financial resources, accounting for their economic vulnerability.
