The Women in Blue Helmets: Gender, Policing, and the UN's First All-Female Peacekeeping Unit

Lesley Pruitt’s book, The Women in Blue Helmets, provides an analysis of the first all-female formed police unit (FFPU) deployed by India to the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL). Pruitt, adopting a normative, critical constructivist feminist approach, delivers an exhaustive account of the creation, work and implications of the unit at both individual and structural levels.
