Gender Realities: Assessing Attitudes, Definitions, Values and Perceptions of Gender Based Violence in Kotido District

Karamoja remains one of the mysteries of Uganda, a zone which few fellow citizens reach, and where few travelers venture. It is an area, an economy and a culture which for many outsiders is captured in a few simplistic terms; “cattle raiders”, “warriors”, and “courtship rape”. All three suggest violence, disregard for fellow human beings, and in particular for women. In exploring these questions for the purposes of designing more context relevant and appropriate responses to SGBV, this report sheds considerable light on gender dynamics among the Jie in Kotido district, and thus offers an important contribution to our understanding of these issues not just in that particular community, but also in agro-pastoralist communities in the wider region.
