Women in Black is both a tribute to the feminist activist and scholar Cynthia Cockburn, and resistance to gendered violence, from Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories, war in the former Yugoslavia oppression and displacement in Africa, Asia and the Americas. This book is a sober and erudite rebuke to those who minimise – or erase – feminist insights into violence, and an inspiring narrative of international peace movements made by women.
Women in Black reminds us of the need to connect moral outrage against wrong, empathy with individuals and engagement with the intricacies of the political dilemmas facing us on the world stage. Knowing how others have done this is a source of ineradicable strength.
Of interest to all peacemakers, this book is both an academic account of and a report on the work of WiB groups all over the world, based on archives and testimonies of individuals. Peace News
