Summary
When we discuss violent acts committed by women, our responses are almost always rooted in deeply gendered assumptions about women. We express surprise and shock that a woman could be capable of such an act--a reaction that relies on a long history of unspoken assumptions about what is proper behavior for a woman. The authors begin by demonstrating the crucial interdependence of the individual and international levels of global politics in the lives of violent women--but they then show how this interdependence is inaccurately depicted, or ignored altogether, in public, political, or media discussions of women's violence
