War Is Not Just an Event: Reflections on the Significance of Everyday Violence

Hypatia 11 (4):30 - 45 (1996)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Although my position is in basic agreement with the notion that war and militarism are feminist issues, I argue that approaches to the ethics of war and peace which do not consider "peacetime" military violence are inadequate for feminist and environmentalist concerns. Because much of the military violence done to women and ecosystems happens outside the boundaries of declared wars, feminist and environmental philosophers ought to emphasize the significance of everyday military violence.
