The chapter departs from the predominant interpretation of violence as physical or direct and association of violence with men. It challenges the normative depiction in academia and the media of women in political conflicts as victims. Although women can engage in direct violence, in Zimbabwe they are mainly involved in cultural violence. This chapter discusses the nexus between women and men’s perpetration of cultural and physical violence respectively. It also discusses men’s victimhood in violent conflict and their participation if peacebuilding which is often feminized at community level.
