This chapter discusses the triangle of relationships among gender, globalization, and militarism. It considers how the steps toward militarizing—the banking system, the idea of cheap labor, and so on—have an impact on the way globalization happens. Moreover, this triad is examined within the context of causality and process—under what conditions does each point of the triad increase or roll back on the others. Furthermore, what are the huge number of steps that have to be taken and retaken to make gender relations, globalizing relations, and militarizing relations happen? This chapter covers a number of topics that utilize this triad: the small arms trade, government intimidation tactics for strike-breaking, militarized police forces, and even the sex industry.

Keywords:   militarization, gender relations, globalizing relations, militarism, militarizing relations, gender, globalization
