Upon signing the truce, the gang leaders demanded the national government provide social programmes and jobs to integrate their members back into the community. Upon joining the gangs, many members are subject to violent initiation practices, such as being horrifically beaten by their fellow gang members to prove their endurance and ability to withstand pain. With more gangs recruiting female members it is perhaps more shocking to acknowledge this extreme violence towards women at the hands of men. Despite women comprising a minority in the 18 th Street and MS gangs, they still occupy a significant role. As the mothers, wives and girlfriends of gang members, they visit their relatives on prison; act as a means of surveillance of victims; and transport drugs and arms as they are often considered less conspicuous than their male counterparts. It is this supportive role that could enable women to restore peace to the streets of El Salvador by stressing the merits of the truce to the male gang members. One possible lead, therefore, is for the government to utilise this dual role of gang-associated women to their advantage by educating them on the benefits of upholding the truce ready for the release of their male relatives and partners, marking the beginning of a slow, yet vital, process.
