Globalizing Forces: Essay Review of Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women’s Lives

D’Amico points out that militaries “manipulate social conceptions of gender,” using assumptions about feminine respectability, duty, sexuality, and skills as grist for the military mill. Enloe draws our attention to the silences about the many different ways in which women are used to sustain what she calls the “Holy Trinity of militarism,” “hierarchy, rivalry, and masculinity.”
