  • A leading author on sexism, militarism, and human security with a large international following

Betty A. Reardon is a feminist pioneer of gender studies who identified the structural relationship between sexism and the war system and as a peace scholar advocated a shift in security thinking from a state centered to a human security perspective. This book is a rich collection of her writing on gender studies, sexism and the war system, and human security from a feminist perspective. As a ground breaker in contemporary theories on gender and peace, Betty A. Reardon has continually developed an inquiry into the integral relationship between patriarchy and war, and to advocate for gender issues as essential content of peace studies, problems of gender equity as the subject of peace research, and gender experience as a crucial factor in defining and pursuing human security. Her work evolved in the context of international women’s movements for human rights and peace and the United Nations. It is widely used by activists and educators bringing a gender perspective to peace studies and education and a peace perspective to women’s studies.
