The original description of the event:

Gender plays a significant role in the rhetoric of war and peace. With ongoing Russian aggression against Ukraine, Marianna Muravyeva and three women scholars, specialists in masculinities, gender studies, women’s history, and feminist politics discuss how anti-gender campaigns, traditional values rhetoric and toxic militarised masculinities in both Russia and Ukraine worked in the past wars and conflicts and what is their role today in this current war.
