Female Combatants in Conflict and Peace explores the intricacies of women's engagement in violence. It seeks to contribute to the growing body of literature on the intersection of gender, conflict and peace by specifically focusing on a particular group of women a€“ female combatants a€“ who pose a challenge to conventional attitudes towards the gendered relationship between violence and peace. In critically scrutinising the role of female combatants in conflict and peace, this edited volume identifies key questions: what role do women play in conflict situations, and what are their experiences of engagement with violence? Where are the female combatants positioned in post-conflict peace and reintegration processes? Through an examination of theory and practice of women's participation in violent conflicts, this insightful study makes the argument that both conflict and post-conflict situations are gender insensitive.United Nations Security Council, 2000. http://www.un.org/events/res 1325e.pdf ( accessed on 2 January 2011). ...
