The book has been produced as a contribution to the debate on emerging eminence of women in peacekeeping and humanitarian operations in the 21st century in Africa with special focus on the experience of Zimbabwe.The book gives a comprehensive analysis of the different women roles in the military in different societies in the majority influenced by cultural beliefs and biases against their efficacy in combat.
This shapes the way society then perpetuates these gender roles in the military in particular.In conclusions, the book noted that the presence of women in peacekeeping missions would improve access and support for local women; make male peacekeepers more reflective and responsible; and broadened the repertoire of skills and styles available within the mission, often with the effect of reduced conflict and confrontation.
Creation of more peacekeeping or increasing the quota of women participation in peacekeeping and humanitarian missions should be understood in the context of effectively contributing to attempts on addressing gender equality including in the international system militaries.
