A feminist analysis, with a new introduction

Representing the first book-length treatment of the application of feminist theories of international law, The boundaries of international law argues that the absence of women in the development of international law has produced a narrow and inadequate jurisprudence that has legitimated the unequal position of women worldwide rather than confronted it.

With a new introduction that reflects on the profound changes in international law since the book’s first publication in 2000, this volume is essential reading for scholars, practitioners and students alike.

as within the discursive framework of revisionary feminist perspectives on surrealism, and to explore how Tanning both shores up and splinters away from such thinking. Significantly, much of this material by Tanning was drafted and/or published in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s concurrently with major shifts in revisionary scholarly pursuits. In what follows, I reconsider select writing through a historiographical approach. In particular, I focus on two texts by Tanning from the late twentieth century: ‘Statement’ (1991) and ‘Some Parallels in Words and Pictures

sustain. Much attention is paid to the symbolic meanings of film; further attention to their material production and the financial undergirding of this expensive enterprise would no doubt influence how we interpret both cinema and its portrayal of international law. Third, the films discussed are also open to interpretation from TWAIL and feminist perspectives in ways that connect with broader debates in international law. For example, Corten refers to how Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 9/11 represents the people of Palau as naked and primitive savages. Moore

56 DISCIPLINES 4 Gender Studies shirin m. rai In order to explore feminist perspectives on democratization we need to understand both feminist frameworks and methodologies. This chapter outlines what a feminist framework might be and then uses this perspective to analyse feminist engagements with the theory and practice of democratization. Democratization can be defined as the process of ‘making democratic’ regimes, practices and discourses of public power. Luckham and White (1996b: 2–8) have identified four areas of inquiry for democratization analysts: (1

The End Conscription Campaign

participation in the ECC. Women and the ECC A decisive factor that defined the ECC as a cultural space and which influenced the gendered nature of the campaigns it conducted was the fact that over 50 per cent of the ECC’s membership was female. Women in the ECC sought to change what they perceived to be patterns of white male behaviour within the organisation and, in turn, to critique white, militarised masculinity in wider South African society from a feminist perspective. There was an increase in women’s peace activism across the world in the 1980s, as right

Zofloya: Or, The Moor Charlotte Dacre’s Zofloya: Or, The Moor ( 1806 ), is in two respects a female version of Lewis’s The Monk: a woman, Victoria di Loredani, now occupies Ambrosio’s role, while the sexual politics of the Gothic are viewed from a feminist perspective. 4 In his review of The Monk, Coleridge distinguishes between Radcliffe

Following the publication of her 2014 book Désamorcer l’islam radical: ces dérives sectaires qui défigurent l’islam, Bouzar founded the Centre de prévention contre les dérives sectaires liées à l’islam (CPDSI). This chapter will focus on Bouzar’s recent writings from a feminist perspective, taking into account the following themes in particular: disruptive discourses in the public arena, the notion of la femme-​alibi, the

understanding of their needs. Other feminists, again both cis and trans, are more cautious, fearing that at least some of the children who present with gender-identity problems are reacting to the pressures of a society which expects them to behave in restrictive ‘gender-appropriate’ ways. If so, from a feminist perspective, it is much better to challenge gender stereotypes than to help boys and girls to transition (Fawcett, 2019 ). Some feminists also share a wider social unease that the rise reflects an element of ‘social contagion’, even a sense that a transgender

by dispossession of reproductive work (Hartsock 2006 , Ezquerra 2012 , Leonard and Fraser 2016 ). Adopting a critical feminist perspective, I describe how activists respond through their demands and alliances to the logic of value extraction underlying the current care regime in Spain. By doing so, they show its potential to contest the boundaries upon which care rights are granted or denied. Finally, I highlight the central role that solidarity can play in the politicisation and democratisation of care. The term democratisation of care
