While both gender relations and conflict in global politics have changed dramatically over the last century, war-making still relies on gendered constructions and images of the state, state militaries, and their role in the international system. These gendered ideologies and images, as well as heavily skewed national budgets devoted to military expenditures, make militarism a stronger and stronger force in global politics and everyday life.
