Abstract: We investigate the long term effects of Peru's internal conflict on women's outcomes. According to Peru's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (CVR), the conflict was responsible for over 69,000 deaths and disappearances from 1980-2000 and between 500,000 to 1 million internally displaced persons. This conflict affected households' ability to generate income because of the death or disappearance of income earners and loss of productive assets. Using data from Peru's Demographic and Health Surveys and district-level conflict data published by the CVR, we find long-term effects of the conflict on some indicators of women's health, particularly on height and anemia.
