Abstract and Keywords

Through what lenses is International Political Theory (IPT) generated, read, and understood? Feminists in IPT have focused on asking that question and, along with it, substantive questions about the shape and omission of IPT—where are the women in IPT? Where is the gender? How can IPT be seen as gender-neutral when it is almost entirely constituted of the musings of white, Western men? This chapter suggests that there is a long and rich history of feminist IPT which broadens not only the representation of women, gender, and sexuality in IPT but also the scope of IPT itself. Using the example of male prostitutes in the United States military to explore both conceptual range and applicability, this chapter looks to provide both an overview of the contributions of feminist IPT and suggestions for looking forward.

Keywords: feminism, gender, sexuality, militarism, security
