Around the world, women have long been on the frontlines, protesting war and military forces. The essays in this collection, from both scholars and activists, explore the experiences of local women''s groups that have developed to fight war, militarization, political domination, and patriarchy throughout the world. The writings in this collection cover a range of genres from memoir and historical accounts to critical essays. What holds the writings together is an urgency to reflect on and analyze women''s activism on the frontiers - from Palestine, Sudan, Iran, Kosovo and rural India to Serbia, Croatia, Okinawa, Israel, U.S. prisons, and the racialized American South.
