Abstract

This chapter addresses the connection between gender issues, weapons, disarmament, and arms control, underscoring a link that, while crucial, still fails to be duly recognized or given proper attention. The chapter offers an introduction to the topic, illustrating how the probability of becoming a victim of certain weapons can differ greatly depending on individuals’ physical and biological characteristics (sex) as well as on the cultural expectations assigned to individuals by society (gender). By providing a series of case studies, this chapter demonstrates how weapons can also produce different short and long-term effects on victims depending on their sex and/or gender. The link between gender and weapons is also explored from the angle of women’s meaningful participation in negotiation and peace processes. Finally, the chapter concludes by analyzing the Russian war on Ukraine, underlining the gender-specific risks deriving from the conflict.

Recruitment processes themselves can be, in fact, influenced by gender stereotypes. Gender inequalities often intersect with other social and economic inequalities or with other factors of discrimination, such as ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographical origin, gender identity and sexual orientation, age, and disability, among others. This phenomenon is known as intersectionality. For more information, see United Nations (2021) and Taylor (2019).
