- Aharoni, Sarai. B. 2017. Who needs the 'Women and Peace Hypothesis'? Rethinking modes of inquiry on gender and conflict in Israel/Palestine. International Feminist Journal of Politics. 19(3): 311-326.
This article considers the evolution of scholarship on the Women and Peace Hypothesis (WPH) in light of evidence obtained from longitudinal research and multilevel analysis of women's different engagements with the question of peace as citizens/civilians, peace activists and peace negotiators in Israel/Palestine. Evidence from this case suggests that: (1) feminist scholars no longer adhere to a one-dimensional prescription of the WPH but are more interested in developing intersectional methods to understand how nonlinear logics of conflict produce and sustain uncoherent gender stereotypes, roles and possibilities of action for women and men; (2) at all levels of analysis (individual, civil society, national) contextual factors, including patterns of political violence, collective identity, class and unequal gender regimes, affect women's political engagement with peace much more than any other factor. Political context and the double gender regime in Israel/Palestine determine specific forms of insecurity experienced by women and are linked to political institutions, social norms and cultural frames that inform choice of action and opportunity for change; and (3) although empirical testing of this hypothesis repeatedly fails to confirm that women are more peaceful than men, the WPH remains a strong conceptual frame that enables women's groups to politically mobilize for change.

This chapter discusses various methods to research women's experiences of insecurity during war and armed conflict and focuses on the possibility to use quantitative methods.. Building on a study that was done in Israel during the Second Intifada, I discuss how descriptive statistics and a self-reporting questionnaires could be used to capture the differences among women and better understand how these differences are linked to the cumulative impact of armed conflict on their roles, experiences, wellbeing, and political attitudes.
