Summary: Waging Gendered Wars examines, through the analytical lens of feminist international relations theory, how US military women have impacted and been affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. By examining how U.S. military women''s agency as soldiers, veterans, and casualties of war affect the planning and execution of war, Whaley Eager assesses the ways in which the global world of international politics and warfare has become localized in the life and death narratives of female service personnel impacted by combat experience, homelessness, military sexual trauma, PTSD, and the deaths of fellow soldiers.
