Disarming Patriarchy: Feminism and Political Action at Greenham
In Disarming Patriarchy, Sasha Roseneil examines the ways in which feminists can resist and transform relations of male domination and female subordination. It is an important contribution to the debates which surround feminism, politics, identity, sexuality and militarism. It is also about one of the most momentous social movements of the twentieth century, a movement which galvanized into action hundreds of thousands of women, confronting patriarchal ideas and challenging the foundations of militarism. Disarming Patriarchy is the first in-depth sociological study of the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp, and is an important contribution to the understanding of women's agency and feminist politics, and to the analysis of contemporary social movements. Disarming Patriarchy is important reading for students of women's studies, sociology, politics and international relations and for everyone interested in our recent social history.
