Empowerment of women in areas adversely affected by several decades of internal conflict in Sri Lanka has paid considerable attention to economic and social aspects. Aid programmes continue to focus on providing financial capital to women and promoting gender equality by way of improved access to education and livelihoods. However, women affected by war are not only troubled by the unavailability of livelihood opportunities but also by their broken-down social networks, which form an integral part of their social capital. War has had several forms of negative impacts on marriage, resulting in widowhood, divorce, or abusive relationships. Breaking down of spousal relationships or being married to abusive husbands has played a crucial role in retarding these women?s capacity for livelihood activities. Being married to an abusive husband seem to have had a far more debilitating impact on women?s livelihood capacities than not having access to financial capital. Empowerment of these widowed and/or abused women demands psychological interventions simultaneously with financial and social intervention.
