Beyond moms, Monsters, Whores takes the advice in Mothers, Monsters, Whores that you will need to see genderings in characterizations of violent girls, and to take advantage of critique of these genderings to retheorize person violence in worldwide politics. It starts by way of demonstrating the interdependence of the non-public and overseas degrees of world politics in violent women's lives, yet then exhibits that this interdependence is inaccurately depicted in gender-subordinating narratives of women's violence.
