This book explores women's perspectives on matters of security and related policy, focusing on women in South Asia who are battling society, insecurity and violence in some form. The book makes three important contributions. First, it examines existing theories of security. Secondly, it goes beyond critique and narrative to seek concrete new agendas for empirical research in security studies. Finally, it brings together statistical, ethnographic and survey data.
