This paper draws on the author's work as an activist and her extensive interaction with civil society organisations in Sudan, especially in South Sudan. It also draws on MA research conducted at the University for Peace in Costa Rica, titled 'Customary Law and Women's Rights in a changing World: The Case of Southern Sudan'. Her knowledge of the women who survived the devastating civil war - be they women who manage to survive within South Sudan - gave her the lens through which to analyse the contemporary situation.
