Do We Track Everyday Gendered Militarization?

To analyze the politics of militarism, we Political Science researchers have to better recognize the multi-threaded processes of everyday militarization. This means looking in places we haven’t been trained to look. Think banks. Think police academies. Think toy stores. Feminist investigators have valuable tools to share.

Cynthia Enloe is Research Professor at Clark University in Massachusetts. Among her recent books are The Big Push: Exposing and Challenging Persistent Patriarchy (2017), as well as a new updated edition of Bananas, Beaches and Bases (2014), and Globalization and Militarism (2016).
