Gender and Violence

Cluster for the Study of Religious Violence

A new issue of the Journal of International Affairs, entitled “The Gender Issue: Beyond Exclusion,” focuses on gender issues in global societies, including conflict zones.

An article by Christine Chinkin and Mary Kaldor examines “Gender and the New Wars.”  Contributions on “comfort women” in Japan and “girl power” also deal with dimensions of gender and violence. Other articles in this issue consider gender gaps, pay inequities, women’s work, and women’s land rights.

NIU students examining religious violence, civil conflict, gender history may be interested in this special issue.

The print issue of the journal has already been released and the electronic version should soon be available.

See the website for the Journal of International Affairs or your local university library to access the issue: Journal of International Affairs 67:1 (Fall/Winter 2013).
