A Man’s World? Exploring the Roles of Women in Countering Terrorism and Violent Extremism (Naureen Chowdhury Fink, Sara Zeiger, Rafia Bhulai; Hedayah and the Global Center on Cooperative Security, 2016)

The role of women in promulgating and countering violent extremism (CVE) is an understudied but critical contemporary security issue. Hedayah and the Global Center on Cooperative Security have developed this publication to further explore women and CVE-related issues through a range of perspectives, reflecting on women’s roles as propagators of terrorism, as well as agents in countering violent extremism.

In this publication, contributors from across the world reflect on the lessons learned from diverse fields of practice, including development, human rights, media, advocacy, academia, and conflict prevention and mitigation, and con- sider their application to CVE efforts. This volume seeks to secure a deeper insight into women’s roles in this field, and offers a nuanced understanding of the grievances that move women toward violent extremism, as well as the enormous potential role that women can play as agents in preventing the spread of violent extremism.

We believe that efforts to counter violent extremism must engage women at all levels. Women are positioned to be effective partners in CVE efforts against intolerance and extremism, and as positive change agents in their families, communities, and public spaces in order to prevent radicalization that leads to violent extremism and acts of terrorism. Only when women are meaningful participants in shaping comprehensive CVE strategies – through the security sector, criminal justice system, in social programs, counter-ideology initiatives, and within civil society – will societies be able to address the conditions conducive to terrorism.
