Cynthia Cockburn

"  ..... despite women’s varied positionalities and perspectives on war, a coherent feminism emerges in this transnational campaigning, and it suggests to both theory and activism a radical analytical shift: we cannot understand war, nor can we effectively campaign against it, without reference to gender power and gendered violence". 

Cynthia Cockburn is Gast Professor aan het Department van Sociologieaan de City University (London) en actief in het internationale feministische anti-militaristische network Women in Black / Vrouwen in 't Zwart
