Exploring international feminist perspectives of September 11, this collection brings together women who discuss the connections between war, terrorism, fundamentalism, racism, global capitalism, and male violence. Breaking through the silence of women's voices, giving immediate reactions and reflective essays on the events of that day, this anthology provides insight into issues such as Western involvement in the Arab world, the language used to justify military intervention, the roots of terrorism, the ongoing situation in the Middle East, and the plight of women, children, and all civilians throughout the world as a result of Western foreign policy. Contributors include Ani DiFranco, Barbara Ehrenreich, Eve Ensler, Barbara Kingsolver, Arundhati Roy, the Revolutionary Association of Women of Afghanistan, and many more.
