After Shock: September 11: Global Feminist Perspectives Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the tidal wave of commentary following 9/11, feminist perspectives were notably missing. This book addresses that gap. Editors Susan Hawthorne and Bronwyn Winter bring together a wide range of views that uncover the connections between war, terrorism, fundamentalism, racism, global capitalism, and male violence. Including immediate reactions and more recent reflections, this collection contains essays, speeches, letters to the U.N. and to George Bush, emails, and poetry, addressing 9/11 with much-needed clarity and passion. Contributors include Barbara Kingsolver, Arundhati Roy, Barbara Ehrenreich, Eve Ensler, Ani di Franco, and the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan.

Book News Annotation:

Women's voices against calls for violent retaliation following the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were not widely disseminated in the mainstream media, in spite of the fact that the plight of women in Afghanistan was used by Laura Bush and Cherie Blair to help justify their husbands initiating the bombing of that country. Feminist activists Hawthorne and Winter document those unheard voices in this collection of 84 pieces from world, including contributions from Representative Barbara Lee (who cast the lone Congressional vote against the war in Afghanistan), Barbara Kingsolver, Rigoberta Menchú, Vandana Shiva, Ani DiFranco, Sonali Kolhatkar, Catharine MacKinnon, and Arundhati Roy. This is a paperbound reprint of a 2002 book.
