Militarism, Conflict and Women’s Activism

Posted by Amina Mama

The most recent issue of Feminist Africa is dedicated to a critical gender analysis of post-colonial Africa’s most destructive scourge - militarism and violent conflict. Africa's indebted governments spent over 17 billion US dollars on weapons every year, while violent conflicts cost over 3 billion dollars of damage annually. The hard-hitting articles such as Militarism, Ethnicity and Sexual Violence in the Rwandan Genocide, Militarization, Gender and Transitional Justice in Africa and Lessons from Kenya: Women and the Post-Election Violence. Read the opening editorial co-written by Global Fund board chair Amina Mama. Visit Feminist Africa's Web site online to read the entire issue.
