name is Evrim. I am from Turkey. I am a socialist
woman. I am also a member of the Party of Socialist
Democracy in Turkey. We have a journal, which
is published on twice a month. Three of the women
in our party, myself and my two friends, have
prepared a middle page for 8 March. The main themes
are militarism, poverty, and violence.
Now the fundamental theme of the world and our
country is war (USA's attack against Iraq). For
this reason, I want to write something about the
ideas of feminism on war. What is the idea of
feminsts about the war? And how can I reach some
resources about this theme.
you are interested to help me, I will be very
very happy. Thank you for your interest.
are several feminists and feminist organizations
involved in peace activism. For instance, the
Not In Our Name Statement, was generated mostly
by feminists, like those affiliated with Refuse
and Resist. There is also the Women's League for
Peace and Freedom and also newer formed coalitions,
like New Yorkers Say No to War.
hope that helps,
