One glaring limitation in addressing the experiences of women is situations of armed conflict is the absence of a sustained analysis of the structural limits and sufficiency of the law of occupation. In almost all the major writing on the law of occupation, women and the relevance of gender analysis to understanding the limits of the law and the experiences of living under occupation have been marginalized or entirely absent. This article bridges that gap with a particular focus on the Occupied Palestinian Territories, addressing selected aspects of the experience of occupation from a gender perspective and offering a new vision on the substance, interpretations, and application of the law.
