Abstract: Images of war and discourses around armed conflict and militarisation are subject to continuous reconstruction and representations based on past and present events (Palmary 2003). Discourses therefore, do not describe the world neutrally but rather classify it, revealing some aspects of social reality while concealing others (Parker 1992). This is true when exploring women’s lived experience in conflict and times of militarised nationalism. Women are constantly represented as victims or perpetrators, little recognising that women play multiple roles, depending on their situations, positionality and intersecting identities. [Continues.]
