Women across the globe are significantly affected by war as currently waged by the USA. However, there has been little public space for dialogue about the complex relationship between feminism, women, and war. This volume 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.
