Description - States of Conflict by Susie Jacobs

Highlighting gendered violence across layers of social and political organization, from the military to the sexual, this book explores the connections between international security, intra-state conflict and domestic violence. International in scope, it makes the links between the local and the global and between the public and the private. Three key themes are explored: the risks women take in resisting violence; women's agency in sustaining conflict; and the public/private divide in the context of gendered violence. The contributors challenge the assumption that women tend towards pacifism and offer a nuanced, detailed analysis of the different layers of gendered violence.
