(p.65) Chapter 3 Feminist and Queer Anti-Militarism
Resisting Militarism

Chris Rossdale

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter looks at how feminist and queer anti-militarists have understood the relationship between militarism, gender and sexuality. Those relationships have been theorised in some detail by academics working at these intersections, and have occasionally taken centre-stage in British anti-militarist politics, most notably at the time of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp in the early 1980s. However, they are not often highlighted in contemporary British anti-militarism. The chapter considers the politics of this limited attention, before turning to a series of cases where anti-militarists have focused on the militarised politics of gender and sexuality. Across three vignettes, the chapter shows activists challenging central dynamics of militarism while also calling attention to the reproduction of militarised gender orders within anti-militarism.
