Gender and Conflict in a Global Context
This book forges connections between militarized violence that occurs before, during, after, and even in the absence of war. It also presents original research illustrating feminist analyses grounded in particular conflict zones. The gendered impact of nationalism and the role of the nation in shaping women's identities, status, and actions are then evaluated. It concentrates on the differential positioning of women compared to men in relation to citizenship, taking into consideration their ethnicity, class, stage in the life cycle/age, urban/rural location, and refugee status, among other factors. The issues of women's empowerment and agency in the context of violent ethnic-national conflicts and wars, driven by competing economic and social interests, are reported. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is offered.
