Abstract

Waging Gendered Wars aims to examine how US military women have impacted and been affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, using the analytical lens of feminist international relations theory. Paige Whaley Eager assesses the ways in which the global world of international politics and warfare has become localized in the life and death narratives of female service personnel impacted by combat experience, homelessness, and PTSD. Mercy Ette feels that the book would have benefited from some tighter editing, but overall it offers fresh insight into the impact of war on women and amplifies personal stories to illustrate the gendered nature of war.
