Download and read online Gender War and Conflict in PDF and EPUB From Pakistan to Chechnya, Sri Lanka to Canada, pioneering women are taking their places in formal and informal military structures previously reserved for, and assumed appropriate only for men. Women have fought in wars, either as women or covertly dressed as men, throughout the history of warfare, but only recently have they been allowed to join state militaries, insurgent groups, and terrorist organizations in unprecedented numbers. This begs the question - how useful are traditional gendered categories in understanding the dynamics of war and conflict? And why are our stories of gender roles in war typically so narrow? Who benefits from them? In this illuminating book, Laura Sjoberg explores how gender matters in war-making and war-fighting today. Drawing on a rich range of examples from conflicts around the world, she shows that both women and men play many more diverse roles in wars than either media or scholarly accounts convey. Gender, she argues, can be found at every turn in the practice of war; it is crucial to understanding not only ‘what war is’, but equally how it is caused, fought and experienced. With end of chapter questions for discussion and guides to further reading, this book provides the perfect introduction for students keen to understand the multi-faceted role of gender in warfare. Gender, War and Conflict will challenge and change the way we think about war and conflict in the modern world.

But Kileen, a San Francisco writer, and Dr. Laura Sanders, a feminist professor from Florida, are tricked into doing just that when they appear on a TV talk show and argue heatedly about male and female roles. The show's conniving hostess, Mari O'Reilly, sees the contest as the opportunity to pump up her sagging TV ratings while guaranteeing the winner will be female. A panel dreams up a series of tests based on ideas that flood in from the public. Soon a "Challenge of the Sexes" with a prize of $1 million is under way. As the competition between Jack and Laura seesaws, the odds change in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, a writer for a sleazy tabloid magazine infiltrates one of Laura's classes and fabricates a sensationalistic story that threatens to get her fired. Jack faces the problem of a growing attraction to the woman monitoring his contest efforts. The "Challenge of the Sexes" reaches a climax in a kayak race on a storm-tossed river in Costa Rica, where a hungry crocodile awaits dinner.

Download and read online The Gender War in PDF and EPUB Linda Collingswood, FBI, accepts reassignment from Hartford to Richmond. On her way south, she visits Gettysburg where she finds John Mason, and they fall in love. The novel chronicles Linda's daily fight against crime and her struggle with her co-workers while the Bureau's bureaucracy slowly settles on her shoulders. Having a low day, Linda visits a park to reflect on her life and meets Jenny. Jennifer is (or was) a witch but not a Harry Potter witch. At Linda's home, Linda and John invite Jenny to stay, and she becomes John's second wife. Linda finds her love fluctuating between Jenny and John. Even though John explains how a change in ones sexual orientation can happen to anyone, it doesn't help Linda. Neither Jenny nor John has a problem with the new arrangement. Both wives become pregnant and look forward to having children. As the days pass, the wives learn that John planted new ideas during his previous travels. John built a computer, and he used it to build a health machine to help women permanently lose weight. These community health centers spread across the country. There is now a Community of Women (COW) which is growing in power and scope. Jenny becomes Queen of the witches, and her sister witches begin to help Linda and the COW. John's philosophy influences the three groups: wives, women, and witches. Other characters enter the story and enable John to explain his views on various subjects based on his Theory of Everything. For example, our physical universe is a school and its purpose is to teach us how to reason logically.

Download and read online The Gender War in PDF and EPUB Imagine you are sitting in a small lecture room listening to profound ideas about human nature and how to effectively strengthen every area of your life. These deep topics are taught in an environment of love and concern for you. They are explained so simply that you are able to come to your own conclusion about each subject quickly. That is what the Self Mastery Lecture Series is. This book is one of several from the Self Mastery Lecture Series, transcribed from recordings taken in 2011. Mark Kailing battled cancer during that time, but continued his weekly lectures. Dr. Kailing was a Psychologist for 16 years serving clients inCalifornia, Nevada and Utah. He loved to teach. During his education a professor taught him, "You don't truly understand something until you can explain it simply". This led Mark to develop simplified theories on life, personality, the universe, truth, core fears and more. His ability to make the profound simple is what made him a great teacher and leader. Dr. Kailing lectured to thousands of students and clients over the years. His self-mastery lecture series was one of his greatest accomplishments. He always lectured with a big smile on his face and spark in his eye. He was inspired by those who also desired to grow and improve in life. Dr. Kailing passed away on May 21, 2013 after battling cancer for three and a half years. His example and influence have been felt by countless family, friends, clients, and colleagues. At the time of his death, he and LaDena had been married for 21 years and were raising their five children, Andrew (16), Aubrielle (15), Ammoriah (12), Ava (8) and Amari (4) in a home filled with adventures and love.

As the last generation of witnesses to the Holocaust testify to its horrors, tehy must also testify to its heroes - those who risked all to safe lives. These movingly told stories restore our faith in the human spirit." --William Shirer "The mystery of the rescue phenomenon will probably always elude us. As the rescuers' narratives in this remarkable volume show, the acts of saving Jews seemed spontaneous and natural, and thus the mystery of the rescue act begins to unravel radiantly. The insights which this interdisciplinary collection of essays subtly pieces together s how in unique fashion the preconditions, or the possibilities, of individual and collective courage." --Dennis B. Klein, author of Jewish Origins of the Psychoanalytic Movement A distinguished group of internationally known individuals, Jews and non-Jews, rescuers and rescued, offer their enriching first-person accounts and reflections that explore the question: Why did the Danes risk their lives to rescue the Jewish population?

Download and read online On the Frontlines in PDF and EPUB Gender oppression has been a feature of war and conflict throughout human history, yet until fairly recently, little attention was devoted to addressing the consequences of violence and discrimination experienced by women in post-conflict states. Thankfully, that is changing. Today, in a variety of post-conflict settings--the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Colombia, Northern Ireland --international advocates for women's rights have focused bringing issues of sexual violence, discrimination and exclusion into peace-making processes. In On the Frontlines, Fionnuala N? Aol?in, Dina Francesca Haynes, and Naomi Cahn consider such policies in a range of cases and assess the extent to which they have had success in improving women's lives. They argue that there has been too little success, and that this is in part a product of a focus on schematic policies like straightforward political incorporation rather than a broader and deeper attempt to alter the cultures and societies that are at the root of much of the violence and exclusions experienced by women. They contend that this broader approach would not just benefit women, however. Gender mainstreaming and increased gender equality has a direct correlation with state stability and functions to preclude further conflict. If we are to have any success in stabilizing failing states, gender needs to move to fore of our efforts. With this in mind, they examine the efforts of transnational organizations, states and civil society in multiple jurisdictions to place gender at the forefront of all post-conflict processes. They offer concrete analysis and practical solutions to ensuring gender centrality in all aspects of peace making and peace enforcement.

Download and read online Making Gender Making War in PDF and EPUB Making Gender, Making War is a unique interdisciplinary edited collection which explores the social construction of gender, war-making and peacekeeping. It highlights the institutions and processes involved in the making of gender in terms of both men and women, masculinity and femininity. The "war question for feminism" marks a thematic red thread throughout; it is a call to students and scholars of feminism to take seriously and engage with the task of analyzing war. Contributors analyze how war-making is intertwined with the making of gender in a diversity of empirical case studies, organized around four themes: gender, violence and militarism; how the making of gender is connected to a (re)making of the nation through military practices; UN SCR 1325 and gender mainstreaming in institutional practices; and gender subjectivities in the organization of violence, exploring the notion of violent women and non-violent men.
