September 11, 2001 : Feminist Perspectives
Edited by Susan Hawthorne and Bronwyn Winter

When the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon were hit by planes in 2001, the world stood in shocked silence. This week the world has been similarly traumatised after the terror attacks in Paris which killed at least 129 people.

After September 11, feminists around the world spoke out, wrote for newspapers, for email lists and for the Internet. But in the male-dominated mass media, it was hard to find feminist perspectives. September 11, 2001 brings together those missing feminist perspectives with women discussing the connections between war, terrorism, fundamentalism, racism, global capitalism and male violence.

From the USA to Afghanistan, from Pakistan to Palestine, from Australia to Europe they have deconstructed this story and retold it from a feminist perspective in a powerful indictment of current global politics. Contributors include Barbara Kingsolver, Sunera Thobani, Naomi Klein, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Robin Morgan, Vandana Shiva, Catharine MacKinnon, Arundhati Roy, Diane Bell, Urvashi Butalia, Ronit Lentin, Kalpana Sharma, Barbara Lee, Bat Shalom, Women Living Under Muslim Law, Ani DiFranco, Revolutionary Association of Women of Afghanistan – and many more.

As the world becomes increasingly chaotic these feminist voices are sorely needed.
