The discourse of women’s safety has been explored theoretically and empirically. Although extant body of literature have looked at the issues of gender, safety, and spaces, relatively very little attention has been given to exploring the stories of pregnant women and nursing mothers. My study aims at capturing the narratives of the pregnant and nursing mothers in Agogo; their resilience, and how they navigate their survival in this rather vicious space. I will adopt a participatory photography design using photo-voices to provide a space for the silenced voices of women in the conflict area to be articulated. This would be corroborated with interviews and observations. Participants in the study will be purposively sampled, pregnant women, and nursing mothers. Data analysis will consider phenomenological, photographic, and inductive processes. It will expand the frontiers of socio-cultural narratives in violent communities in Ghana and their application in the Humanities and Gender studies.
