Feminism and war : confronting US imperialism by Chandra Talpade Mohanty( Book )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
"Women across the globe are being dramatically affected by war as currently waged by the USA. But there has been little public space for dialogue about the complex relationship between feminism, women, and war. The editors of Feminism and War have brought together a diverse set of leading theorists and activists who examine the questions raised by ongoing American military initiatives, such as: a) What are the implications of an imperial nation/state laying claim to women's liberation? b) What is the relation between this claim and resulting American foreign policy and military action? c) Did American intervention and invasion in fact result in liberation for women in Afghanistan and Iraq? d) What multiple concepts are embedded in the phrase "women¹s liberation"? e) How are these connected to the specifics of religion, culture, history, economics, and nation within current conflicts? f) What is the relation between the lives of Afghan and Iraqi women before and after invasion, and that of women living in the US? g) How do women who define themselves as feminists resist or acquiesce to this nation/state claim in current theory and organizing? Feminism and War reveals and critically analyzes the complicated ways in which America uses gender, race, class, nationalism, imperialism to justify, legitimate, and continue war. Each chapter builds on the next to develop an anti-racist, feminist politics that places imperialist power, and forms of resistance to it, central to its comprehensive analysis."--Publisher description

Depicting the veil : transnational sexism and the war on terror by Robin L Riley( Book )
11 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 192 libraries worldwide
This text exposes how gendered Orientalism is wielded to justify Western imperialism. Over the last ten years, Western governments and mainstream media have utilized concepts of white masculine supremacy and feminine helplessness, juxtaposed with Orientalist images depicting women of colour as mysterious, sinister, and dangerous to support war. Oscillating between 'Mrs. Anthrax', female suicide bombers and tragic, helpless victims, representations of 'brown women' have spawned both rescue narratives and terrorist alerts

Hidden soldiers: gender, militarism, and the discourse of defense by Robin L Riley( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This study of women associated by work or by partnership to American defense industries, examines the ways that militarism works in and around the lives of those who live and work in proximity to highly militarized sites. Militarism simultaneously imposes and is dependent upon certain constructions of gender for sustenance. Within these particular constructions, men should be strong, protective, and eager for war. Women on the other hand should be nurturing, in need of protection and peace-loving. The participants in this study adhere discursively to these particular constructions, their lived practices of gender however, are in tension and sometimes contradiction with the gender constructs on which militarism relies. While militarism is popularly believed to be about men and male paradigms, in fact militarism could not exist without the labor, both paid and unpaid, and allegiance of women. Women's work both in the home and in the workplace makes the production of weapons possible. The narratives of the women included in this study make visible their unending toil, an ethic of secrecy, and aspirations towards patriotism that characterize their lives
