Introduction – Patriarchy and Conflict

In casual usage, gender marks the biological sex of a person. Gender is more of a socially shaped phenomenon that distinguishes between the definition of masculinity and femininity. It is more of a societal hierarchy in which masculine characteristics are believed to be superior to feminine ones. It illustrates an unequal distribution of power between men and women. In all conflicts, social structures are under attack. Gender discrimination clarifies the role of men and women in society and also the social relationship between the two. The concept of war or armed conflicts is also a gendered one. This is common in many countries. These deep-rooted conflicts within and between countries are perennial and invincible. Mutual concurrence and agreements cannot be easily laid down. Violence and hostility has strengthened for decades worsening the possibilities of harmony in the future
