Abstract

This paper tries to explore Sudanese women’s involvement in civil society. It looks at their roles as actors in public life with emphases on their roles in conflict resolution and peace reconstruction. The paper argues that Sudanese women are active members in civil society, yet they face many obstacles which could hinder their full involvement in development and peace reconstruction. These obstacles include lack of gender awareness or political well that perpetuates patriarchy and old/negative traditions. However, despite these constrains women were able to find a place for themselves in a male dominated sphere and to create and develop their own civil society organizations. Moreover, and through their civil society organizations, women were able to develop national and regional networks and to lobby and negotiate for political, economic and financial constructions of their country.
