This book explores how citizenship is differently gendered and performed across national and regional boundaries. Using citizenship as its organizing concept, it brings together a collection of multidisciplinary approaches to the legal, socio-cultural and performative aspects of gender construction and identity: violence against women, victimhood and agency, and everyday issues of socialization in a globalized world. The volume examines citizenship as embodied and enacted, and explores various perspectives on gender in relation to citizenship. The essays featured here analyse citizenship struggles and challenges of recent significant global issues and cover a wide range of social, civic and political spaces. Gendered Citizenship brings together scholars of politics, media, and performance who are committed to dialogue across both nation and discipline. This book is the culmination of a two-year project on 'Gendered Citizenship', and is a compilation of research that is interdisciplinary and multinational, drawing on Indian, European, and North and South American contexts.
