Summary

Women have participated in political violence throughout history. Yet women as active proponents and perpetrators of political violence and terrorism is not widely accepted. Viewed as being forced by partners, sexually abused or brainwashed, the possibility of political motives is not often considered. Eager utilizes a framework to analyze women engaged in political violence in different contexts to examine structural variables, ideological goals of the organization and personal factors which contribute to involvement.Case study rich, this informative read provides an indispensable guide to examining women's role in left/right wing engagement, ethno-nationalist/separatist violence, guerrilla movements and suicide bombers.
