Sex and World Peace

#ad
Columbia University Press #ad - The authors find that the treatment of women informs human interaction at all levels of society. Their research challenges conventional definitions of security and democracy and shows that the treatment of gender, played out on the world stage, informs the true clash of civilizations. Harnessing an immense amount of data, and they note the adverse effects on state security of abnormal sex ratios favoring males, they call attention to discrepancies between national laws protecting women and the enforcement of those laws, and inequitable realities in family law, the practice of polygamy, among other gendered aggressions.

The authors compare micro-level gender violence and macro-level state peacefulness in global settings, supporting their findings with detailed analyses and color maps. Emphasizing the importance of an r2pw, they mount a solid campaign against women's systemic insecurity, or state responsibility to protect women, which effectively unravels the security of all.
