This chapter examines issues of gender and security. It begins with an explanation of what we mean by gen-der and explains why issues of gender are central to understanding security. International Relations special-ists have over the last three decades explored and interpreted the ways in which men and women have re-sponded to the national and international policies which have governed conflict, terrorism, and war. The chapter demonstrates that through understanding and placing notions of gender at the centre of any debate on security we can unleash a series of interlocking understandings of the way men and women relate to in-security, violence, and war.
