Women Conscientious Objectors - An Anthology

en
es

War Resisters' International's latest book publication Women Conscientious Objectors - An Anthology, published in April 2010, is now also available online. The book breaks with the assumption that conscientious objectors are generally seen as male - as are soldiers. Women conscientiously object to military service and militarism. Not only in countries which conscript women - such as Eritrea and Israel - but also in countries without conscription of women. In doing so, they redefine antimilitarism from a feminist perspective, opposing not only militarism, but also a form of antimilitarism that creates the male conscientious objector as the 'hero' of antimilitarist struggle.

This anthology includes contributions by women conscientious objectors and activists from Britain, Colombia, Eritrea, Israel, Paraguay, South Korea, Turkey, and the USA, plus documents and statements.
