Sex and World Peace should be on top of every introductory International Relations reading list. (Sara E. Davies International Affairs)
[A] pioneering and readable book.... Highly recommended. (Choice)
This is an important, well written, and inf ormative book that will serve a wide audience of graduate and undergraduate students, academics, and policymakers, as well as the interested public. (Helen M. Kinsella Ethics and International Affairs)
highly readable and provides a thought-provoking introduction to the reasons why equality between women and men within the family matters for the relations between states and, ultimately, world peace. (Marijke Breuning Peace and Conflict)
A landmark book. (Gloria Steinem Ms.)
Since violence against females is the normalizer of all other forms of violence, this book is vital, from family life to foreign policy. (Gloria Steinem T: The New York Times Style Magazine)
Sex and World Peace argues that the security of women is a vital factor in the overall security of the state and its incidence of conflict and war. The authors compare micro-level gender violence and macro-level state peacefulness in global settings, supporting their findings with detailed analyses and color maps. Their research challenges conventional definitions of security and democracy, and they examine top-down and bottom-up approaches to healing the wounds of violence against women, inequity in family law, and the lack of parity in decision-making councils. Women's systemic insecurity unravels the security of all, and the authors articulate an international policy agenda that reflects this reality.

Sex and World Peace explains the situation of women around the world in an accessible way. You don't need a PhD to understand the research and conclusions. It is a brilliant collection of stories and analysis and paints a picture of how the world really is. This book is different from all other socio-political views of the world because it actually recognizes the important role women play in societies. Not only does this book point out the issues women face, it also provides pragmatic solutions for every level's involvement. It is not another depressing book that overwhelms the reader with the horrors of being a woman. It states the realities and gives ways that we can realistically change things for the better. Reading this book helped me to know how I can fight for the equality of men and women around the world.
If you are Male and under the age of 110 this is a must read for you.
This book highlights the thoughts that we have all been thinking for years with sound research and stories of women around the world. It deals not only with women in the United States, but in many both developed and third world. It takes a hard look at the way women have been suppressed by men in power.
In light of the Supreme Court Decision regarding affordable health care I have re-read the book. We need more women in the decision making process in this ever shrinking world of instant communication. I am afraid that the only way we are going to get that is for women to seek the power of politics, not only of government but of the home.
I believe this book should be required reading for every undergraduate, If you are a College or University professor put it on your list, and talk about its implications with your students.
