Militarism, Patriarchy and Peace Movements
The article presents a conversation between feminist writers Cynthia Cockburn and Cynthia Enloe about the politics of gender, militarism and peace movements. According to Enloe, Cockburn's "Brothers" is one of her all-time favourite feminist books. Cockburn says the feminist turning point for her was in 1995. She also points out that women in England tend to perceive domestic violence as one problem while war violence as a different one. Enloe cites the three important analytical conclusions of feminists in several countries. Enloe discusses the feminist understanding of war and how it can be operationalised into peace movements.
