Abstract

This paper uses the formidable global source of human insecurity HIV/AIDS, to argue that gender perspectives should become an integral part of mainstream human security discourse. The proposition of the paper is that while discussions on human security have attempted to encompass threats to humanity as a whole, interpretations of such threats have primarily been male-oriented and have largely failed to recognise the exceptional threats faced by women. In recognising that women face unique threats to their security, it is necessary that these additional threats become incorporated into mainstream discussions of human security, rather than being relegated to a sub category or a footnote. The unique vulnerability to HIV/AIDS transmission of women in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), is examined in the context of this proposition, and evidence is offered to support the argument that a gendered analysis of human insecurity is certainly relevant and necessary in mainstream human security discourse.
