Abstract

Women have historically been excluded from war literature. Recently, however, women, including those in the Middle East, have begun to recount the stories of war and create alternatives to time-honoured masculinized war narratives. Their articulation of their experiences is having a dramatic impact on perceptions of conflict, sexuality, and society.
