In 2000, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) unanimously passed UNSC Resolution 1325, highlighting the gendered impact of war and urging the incorporation of women into peacekeeping processes and post-confl ict reconstruction (UNSC 2000). That moment marked the arrival of what I term “International Confl ict Feminism” (ICF) as a player in global power politics.2 In 2010, the US government explicitly incorporated UNSC Resolution 1325 into its national security strategy. This equally symptomatic moment underscored how deeply ICF had been embedded in American foreign policy in the intervening decade.3
