The war in Guatemala led to high levels of violence, which continued post-conflict. The article outlines the effects of the war, the post war societal issues and the continuum of violence. The author believes that the society needs to work towards an inclusive and just society. The reasons this currently lacks due to the military and the judicial system. The article suggests that repression should be challenged, and that the psychological impact on women due to violence should be analysed.
