About this book

This edited volume illuminates the role of women in violence to demonstrate that gender is a key component of discourse on conflict and peace. Through an examination of theory and practice of women's participation in violent conflicts, the book makes the argument that both conflict and post-conflict situations are gender insensitive.

Reviews

''This is an essential volume for anyone interested in the gendered dynamics of women's involvement in political violence from mobilization to disarmament and reintegration. The contributors have conducted invaluable ethnographic research from across the globe that is posited within rigorous feminist theorising.'' - Dr Caron Gentry, University of St Andrews
