Notes: 
Review, Network Winter/Spring 2005: Since September 11, 2001, national security has been defined in terms of the threat posed by terrorism. But who and what are genuine threats to our security? The Canadian government has responded to these perceived threats by spending more on defence, diverting money away from important social programs, making life more difficult for the poor. The authors of this fact sheet make the case that women are at particular risk. They are more likely to experience poverty, and the chauvinistic and violent culture that is often allowed to flourish in the military, leading to increased attacks on women as well as on visible minorities or racialized groups.
