Product description

Review

Laura Sjoberg, Caron Gentry and their deeply informed contributors dismantle the exoticized stereotype of the woman terrorist by revealing the complex dynamics between women, ideas about femininity, insurgencies and violence. This provocative collection will be of genuine value to anyone trying to be smart about gender, conflict, media and political mobilization.

--Cynthia Enloe "author of Nimo's War, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War "

An important book featuring the leading experts in the field, Women, Gender, and Terrorism goes beyond the rhetoric, stereotypes, and news headlines to provide the most comprehensive account of female militants available. With diverse case studies, unique first-person interviews, and thoughtful feminist analysis, the authors of this volume offer a wealth of information on the motivations, strategies, and impacts of female militants. This work disrupts several age-old stereotypes associated with 'what women do' during war and social movements including the idea of the inherently peaceful and nurturing woman, and the assumption of females as perpetual victims of male violence. Women, Gender, and Terrorism is undeniably groundbreaking, making an invaluable contribution to the literature on war, militarism, and terrorism.

--Megan MacKenzie "Department of Government and International Relations, University of Sydney and Women and Public Policy Program, Harvard University "

Deserves ongoing praise and recommendation for its ground-breaking survey pairing case studies and first-person interviews with feminist analysis to consider the motivations, strategies and impact of female militants around the world. It offers a fine assessment of women's roles in war, terrorism and world military struggles, and features leading experts in the field who provide a fine wide-reaching survey that refutes common stereotypes of women's involvement in social movements.--Midwest Book Review
