“Beauty Will Save the World”: Beauty Discourse and Reinforcement of Gender Binaries in Aftermath

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The lives of women are changed by conflict. Women often are forced to flee as refugees, subjected to rape, and recruited into militant groups as violent actors. However, post-conflict, the varied roles women assume during wartime frequently are overlooked, leading women’s voices to be excluded from the rebuilding process. This paper examines “post conflict” discourse in the Chechen Republic. It argues that state discourse disseminated characterizing a beauty contest as a "key factor" in “normalizing” the region has served to obscure women’s roles, highlighting women’s physical characteristics while ignoring vital debates regarding human rights in the republic.
