when the men are incapacitated. Accordingly, until women’s lives are valued equally to their deaths, direct female participation in terrorism will not advance women’s rights nor improve gender inequality. Not surprisingly, female engagement within these groups is actually more likely to result in harmful consequences for society: if the only opportunity for intelligent and politically driven women to engage in politics is through their deaths, then society is losing its most qualified women. Women who will not be able to contribute to developing their communities and eradicating the harmful role model of a female bomber. This chapter established that gender constructs do indeed influence women’s participation and role in terrorist movements. Accordingly, understanding women’s participation, role, and motivation in joining terrorist networks, is crucial to developing policies that effectively counter-terrorism. Only viewing women as passive vessels and victims of terrorism is counter-productive for the creation of effective counter-terrorism policies, and further perpetuates stereotypical views on the roles of women. Ignoring women’s agency and active participation in terrorism could lead to unintended consequences for counter-terrorism policies, including missing potential intervention opportunities to prevent possible propagation within women’s social circles. Moreover, by overlooking female’s agency in terrorism, researchers may not be taking into full consideration the grievances and potential motivations contributing to women’s radicalization and recruitment. Accordingly, the following chapter will consider if implementing a gendered approach to counter-terrorism produces more effective strategies, and what role women can play in preventing and countering violent extremism and terrorism. Gendered Counter-Terrorism Approaches The negation of women as potential terrorists is a clear outcome of not applying a gender-neutral profile, and has the potential to significantly constrain counter-terrorism measures. However, while gender stereotypes, specifically those denying women their agency in political violence and terrorism may create barriers to counter-terrorism laws, they may also justify giving greater powers to counter-terrorism provisions; and while recognizing women’s capacity for mobilizing into terrorist organizations is crucial for developing more effective counter-terrorism strategies, it is not a task easily met. When seeking to protect a state, its institutions, and its civilians from female terrorism, governments counter-terrorism responses and policies may be overreaching and reactive. For example, impulsive responses may inadvertently challenge local cultural norms and target women directly for surveillance, stop, search and detention. Consequently, arbitrary and abusive treatment of any population may act as a recruitment tool for terror groups, especially when outside forces begin to target women in societies with strong ideologies of purity, motherhood and honour. Accordingly, this chapter will address current counter-terrorism measures and their subsequent impacts on women’s lives. It will then examine whether approaching counter-terrorism with a gender perspective would improve human rights implications, specifically for women. First however, it is important to place gender within the context of human rights.
