Gender and International Relations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Until fairly recently the field of International Relations has been completely dominated by men and has, therefore, been open to the charge of ignoring the situations of women described above. However, some feminists have sought to rectify what they refer to as the ‘invisibilty’ of women in IR by highlighting the crucial part(s) women play – and therefore the importance of gender – in IR. Above all, studying gender and IR highlights the inequalities between men and women; or in other words, outlines unequal gender relations internationally.
