CISSM Global Forum Women and Rebel Group Legitimacy
When: Thursday, May 6, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM
Description: Women's participation in rebel groups and the violence perpetrated against women by rebel groups both emerge from and reflect the group's ideological commitment. Women's inclusion thus affects how domestic and international audiences including civilians, governments, and international organizations perceive the activities of specific armed groups. In this talk we unpack how different types of non-state armed groups have used women to convey messages, build a reputation, and develop legitimacy.
