'Innocent Women and Children': Gender Norms and the Protection of Civilians
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Feb 1, 2013 - 230 pages
This ground-breaking study examines the influence of gender constructs on the international regime protecting war-affected civilians. R. Charli Carpenter argues that to understand the way in which laws of war are implemented and promoted in international society we must first understand how gender ideas affect and ultimately undermine the principle of civilian immunity.
