On Friday, November 17, Consortium Director Carol Cohn spoke on the panel "Gender and Nuclear Security" at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy's Third Annual on Gender and International Affairs, "Money, Power and Influence: The Gendered Dimensions of Geopolitics." Dr. Cohn's comments included highlighting that the symbolic gendering of nuclear weapons strategy preempts asking certain questions and pointing out that the language on nuclear weapons and nuclear war is abstracted and masculinized in that it normalizes talking about millions of casualities and immense human suffering without batting an eye.
