Mostly American scholars of women's studies and English demonstrate how women and children are further subjugated when political or humanitarian groups represent them solely as victims and portray people helping them as paternal saviors. They look at human rights, trans/nationalism, and cultures of security; human rights and the evidence of experience; and activist and official networks.
