Women, Bangladesh and International Security purports to do two things. Firstly, it is an attempt to relate the life and living of Bangladesh women with the domain called international security. Seldom is there an understanding that the women of Bangladesh are actively engaged in the organization and reproduction of international security. Secondly, it is a theoretical intervention to the debate as how best to understand the engendered relationship between the national and the international. Often the idea is that women issues are mainly of domestic concern, with women hardly contributing to the domain of the international. This view is strongly challenged by the authors of this volume. With themes as diverse as women's voice, women's insecurity, religion, law, trafficking, nuclear and conventional weapons, small arms, war and peace, and peace-building, the authors here boldly challenge the so-called traditional role of women, that is, keeping themselves within the domain of the home, and make them active agents of the world.
