DetallesNowadays, women are being used as human weapons in current political and economic conflicts. From this perspective, this book includes several empirical and thearetical tools to analyze this problem and ultimately contribute to a change, which would make women become key actars in peace building process.In arder to show how gender violence currently affects women\'s lives, it presents contrasted cases where experiences of women in conflicts and wars can be considered as the tip of the iceberg of an existing patriarchal system in our societies. Thus, this book will allow the reader to develop a deeper understanding of how gender violence goes beyond different geographical, social and political realities as they all share the gender inequality.
