2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. Aragon VINE VOICE on January 11, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book fills a void in terms of the lack of published feminist analyses of September 11th and the ensuing global outcomes. There are more than 80 entries in this, which is divided into different sections: Part One: Reactions, Whose Terrorism; Whose War; Whose Peace; and Part Two: Reflections. The contributors vary from activists to activist-academics, writers, women's NGO's and IGO's, and other women's grassroots organizations. The authors share a distinct call for examining September 12th with a feminist lens, which has been missing from mainstream media. Hopefully, this anthology is one of many others that mainstream audiences will read about global politics from feminist points of view. Feminists have been writing about global politics for more than thirty years and it is about time that more people outside of academe read their work.

The editors set up the anthology by explaining that September 11th did indeed shake up the world. In the ensuing days after the attack, President Bush and others began a jingoistic response that ultimately fed into fears of Muslim people and others. The coverage of the attacks and the post-September 11th responses were primarily knee-jerk reactions strife with politically laden messages and a backlash against civil liberties for most in the US. The editors also note that feminist response was immediate and swift; however, no one was listening. No one was listening to the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) and their 25-year struggle against the Taliban. No one was listening to the Feminist Majority Foundation's collaboration with RAWA and the attempts to help Afghani women during the last decade.
