States of Conflict free pdf 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.
