Download the Publication. Read the full issue. In January then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta rather unexpectedly lifted the ban on women in combat roles. This came after more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan where women had distinguished themselves in many ways—not the least of which included combat. The debate on the implementation of this decision has since raged, raising questions about physical standards and the impact on unit cohesion, among other things. The last few years have also witnessed a necessary discussion about the outrageous frequency of sexual assaults within military organizations.

Gender, War, and Militarism: Feminist Perspectives: Feminist Perspectives
This compelling, interdisciplinary compilation of essays documents the extensive, intersubjective relationships between gender, war, and militarism in 21st-century global politics. Militarization pervades everyday life, and gender pervades militarization. Feminist scholars have long contended that war and militarism are fundamentally gendered. Gender, War, and Militarism: Feminist Perspectives provides empirical evidence, theoretical innovation, and interdisciplinary conversation on the topic, while explicitly—and uniquely—considering the links between gender, war, and militarism. Essentially an interdisciplinary conversation between scholars studying gender in political science, anthropology, and sociology, the essays here all turn their attention to the same questions.
Citation: Dolan, Maureen. Abstract: Analyses of the Sandinista defeat in the Nicaraguan elections of have focused both on the external pressures on the revolutionary state warfarea and subsequent economic factors unfavorable for the national economy and on factors internal to the revolutionary process separation of FSLN from the grassroots organizations, hierarchical party structures, and related factors. However, little space has been devoted to an analysis of the gender politics of the election, either in terms of women's response as subjects differently affected by the war or in terms of the impact of the ideological struggle over the social construction of women and mothers in the electoral process. This paper will examine how the complex personal and political component of the lived experience of prolonged warfare became articulated in the gender politics of the electoral campaign.

This is not to say that the notion of the war system and gender influencing each other is simply a foregone conclusion. Goldstein himself uses a range of empirical evidence combined with both feminist and international relations theories to bring his point across.
This chapter identifies and interrogates the gendered underpinnings of militarism. In doing so, it examines the contributions of feminist scholars and activists to our understanding of militarism and gender. The chapter examines concepts of peace, war, and security as components of militarism, uncovers the assumptions about gender and race that shape dominant perceptions of war and militarism, and examines how representations and narratives based on these assumptions have material effects. In particular, the chapter uncovers the ways gender operates as a hierarchical configuration of various expressions and performances of masculinity and femininity and how this function of gender shapes ideas of war, peace, and in security. Finally, the chapter illustrates how the understanding of militarism as gendered is central to the ways military conflicts have been enabled, justified, and played out, most recently in the War on Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq.
