Sites of Violence: Gender and Conflict ZonesWenona Mary Giles, Jennifer Hyndman
University of California Press, 2004 - Science

Insightfully and lucidly maps the gendered contours of militarized conflict, from war zones to refugee camps, and across continents as diverse as Africa, South Asia, Central America and Europe. This exciting book provides a variety of incisive feminist critiques of ethnic-nationalism, disputes over oil rights, and discourses about religious fundamentalism. This work not only explores and interrogates conflict, but also seeks to provide a feminist framework for moving beyond the violence of war.
