September 11, 2001: Feminist Perspectives
Bronwyn Winter, Susan Hawthorne (eds.)

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. This collection brings together women who discuss 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.

September 11, 2001: Feminist Perspectives is an inspiring monument to the many voices of reason, compassion and wisdom that have cried out in dissent of this ongoing madness. It is an invaluable intervention from those who hold up more than half the sky, and is essential reading for all men and women to better inform themselves of the meanings and ramifications of "9/11", the current Terror War, and mass violence in general.

Arnaud Gallois, Melbourne Journal of Politics
This book provides an important political and academic forum for the inclusion of women’s otherwise marginalised voices in all discussions surrounding the current context of war, globalization, imperialism, and neo-Orientalism, all of which are shaping the post-9/11 order.
Bethsheba M. Opin, The American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences
The women contributing to this book, in their passion and clarity of thought and imagination, have surely given hope to many others where none seemed possible.[It] represents an essential contribution to the vast literature spawned by the events on that day in New York. 
Liz Crock, Canadian Woman Studies/Les Cahiers de la femmes
