Due to widespread availability, mobility and ease of use, prolific small arms and light weapons (SALW) have become central to maintaining social dislocation, destabilization, insecurity and crime in the build to up to war, in wartime and in the aftermath of violent conflict. The book draws on experience and research from around the world on the nexus of gender, age, violence and small arms in developing and developed countries. The findings feed into a number of recommendations for future policy formulation, programme implementation and research designed to further illuminate and counteract the firing of the Sexed Pistol.
