Seriously! : investigating crashes and crises as if women mattered by Cynthia H Enloe( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Seriously!, Cynthia Enloe, author of the groundbreaking analysis of globalization, Bananas, Beaches, and Bases, addresses two deeply gendered and contested questions: Who is taken seriously? And who gets to bestow the label ""serious"" on others? With a strategy of taking both women and gender dynamics seriously, Cynthia Enloe investigates the Dominique Strauss-Kahn affair and the banking crash of 2008, the subsequent recession, as well as UN peacekeeping and the ongoing Egyptian revolution. Each case study highlights the gritty experiences of women in diverse circumstances-in banks, on the
What kind of liberation? : women and the occupation of Iraq by Nadje Sadig Al-Ali( )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the run-up to war in Iraq, the Bush administration assured the world that America's interest was in liberation - especially for women. In this first book to examine how Iraqi women have fared since the invasion, What Kind of Liberation? reports from the heart of the war zone with dire news of scarce resources, growing unemployment, violence, and seclusion. Moreover, the book exposes the gap between rhetoric that placed women center stage and the present reality of their diminishing roles in the "new Iraq." Based on interviews with Iraqi women's rights activists, international policymakers, and NGO workers and illustrated with photographs taken by Iraqi women, What Kind of Liberation? speaks through an astonishing array of voices. Nadje Al-Ali and Nicola Pratt correct the widespread view that the country's violence, sectarianism, and systematic erosion of women's rights come from something inherent in Muslim, Middle Eastern, or Iraqi culture. They also demonstrate how in spite of competing political agendas, Iraqi women activists are resolutely pressing to be part of the political transition, reconstruction, and shaping of the "new Iraq.""--Jacket
Nimo's war, Emma's war : making feminist sense of the Iraq War by Cynthia H Enloe( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nimo, Maha, Safah, Shatha, Emma, Danielle, Kim, Charlene. In a book that once again blends her distinctive flair for capturing the texture of everyday life with shrewd political insights, Cynthia Enloe looks closely at the lives of eight ordinary women, four Iraqis and four Americans, during the Iraq War. Among others, Enloe profiles a Baghdad beauty parlor owner, a teenage girl who survived a massacre, an elected member of Parliament, the young wife of an Army sergeant, and an African American woman soldier. Each chapter begins with a close-up look at one woman's experiences and widens into a dazzling examination of the larger canvas of war's gendered dimensions. Bringing to light hidden and unexpected theaters of operation -- prostitution, sexual assault, marriage, ethnic politics, sexist economies -- these stories are a brilliant entryway into an eye-opening exploration of the actual causes, costs, and long-range consequences of war. This unique comparison of American and Iraqi women's diverse and complex experiences sheds a powerful light on the different realities that together we call, perhaps too easily, 'the Iraq war'."--Publisher description

Globalization and militarism : feminists make the link by Cynthia H Enloe( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and French and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Militarism is being globalized today, not only because weapons are being traded worldwide, but because certain ideas about 'femininity' and 'masculinity' are being promoted and absorbed globally. Who is presumed to be the 'protector?' Who is taught to be grateful to be the 'protected?' Written by one of the world's leading feminist scholars, this masterful and provocative book considers how women's desires to be patriotic yet feminine and men's fears of being feminized have been exploited to globalize militarism - and thus what it will take to roll back militarization anywhere. Through explorations of how governments think so narrowly about 'national security, ' of how postwar reconstruction efforts have marginalized women, of how ideas about feminization were used to humiliate male prisoners in Abu Ghraib, and of why 'camo' has become a fashion statement, the author unravels militarism's both blatant and subtle workings. Focusing her lens on the 'big picture' of international politics and on the small picture of women's and men's complex everyday lives, she challenges us to recognize militarism in all its forms

Ethnicity and the military in Asia by DeWitt C Ellinwood( Book )

12 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines ethnicity in relation to one major facet of Asian life--the military. Ethnicity, now being studied on a variety of scholarly and geographical fronts, is a fruitful topic for consideration in the study of the relationships between the Asian armed forces and their governments and societies. While Ethnicity and the Military of Asia profits from recent explorations of ethnicity, it also benefits from the current interest in a close scholarly examination of the relationship between armed forces, war, and society. Since the military institutions of so many Asian societies have played or are playing leading roles in their country's government, the military has a relationship, often ambiguous, to the development of the expression of nationhood--a central factor in the new states of Asia. This study shows that policies concerning the military have importance for intergroup relations by expressing policies on ethnicity and by modifying relations between ethnic groups. One factor that correlates with this is that policy concerning membership in the military has a relationship to the search for "modernization" and to social mobility."--Provided by publisher
The big push : exposing and challenging the persistence of patriarchy by Cynthia H Enloe( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over a century and in scores of countries, patriarchal presumptions and practices have been challenged by women and their male allies. "Sexual harassment" has entered common parlance; police departments are equipped with rape kits; more than half of the national legislators in Bolivia and Rwanda are women; and a woman candidate won the plurality of the popular votes in the 2016 United States presidential election. But have we really reached equality and overthrown a patriarchal point of view? The Big Push exposes how patriarchal ideas and relationships continue to be modernized to this day. Through contemporary cases and reports, renowned political scientist Cynthia Enloe exposes the workings of everyday patriarchy--in how Syrian women civil society activists have been excluded from international peace negotiations; how sexual harassment became institutionally accepted within major news organizations; or in how the UN Secretary General's post has remained a masculine domain. Enloe then lays out strategies and skills for challenging patriarchal attitudes and operations. Encouraging self-reflection, she guides us in the discomforting curiosity of reviewing our own personal complicity in sustaining patriarchy in order to withdraw our own support for it. Timely and globally conscious, The Big Push is a call for feminist self-reflection and strategic action with a belief that exposure complements resistance."--Provided by publisher

Comfort woman : a Filipina's story of prostitution and slavery under the Japanese military by Maria Rosa Henson( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 1943, fifteen-year-old Maria Rosa Henson was taken by Japanese soldiers occupying the Philippines and forced into prostitution as a 'comfort woman.' In this simply told yet powerfully moving autobiography, Rosa recalls her childhood as the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy landowner, her work for Huk guerrillas, her wartime ordeal, and her marriage to a rebel leader who left her to raise their children alone. Her triumph against all odds is embodied by her decision to go public with the secret she had held close for fifty years. Now in a second edition with a new introduction and foreword that bring the ongoing controversy over the comfort women to the present, this powerful memoir will be essential reading for all those concerned with violence against women"--Back cover
