The Issue of gender identity has elicited intriguing debates within the international relations scholarship. While the apologists of ‘masculine’ dominance in world affairs derive their strength of argument from the God-given and traditional leadership role given to man from creation, the feminists on the other hand posits that in practice, there is on the average, no significant difference in the capacities or capabilities of men and women. It is in the light of the foregoing that this paper interrogates the gender identity question in relation to the debacle in the Sudanese peace process occasioned by the protracted nature of the conflict in the area. Adopting the feminist theoretical construct, the paper relies on mostly secondary sources of historical information, subjected to content analysis in examining the Sudanese conflict in historical terms. It emphasizes on the prolonged peace process that has defied all solutions. Feminism as an international relations theory is conceptually clarified, its postulations and predictions explained, and its prescriptions suggested as antidotes for the peaceful resolution of the conflict in Sudan.
