Abstract

This book argues that women, from the plurality and diversity of their lives, are able to lay the foundations of struggles against fascist germs through an analysis of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the violations of Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib, the US presidential election in 2004 and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, revealing its most recent militarist and machista configurations. In manipulating the rhetoric of women's rights, especially by Condoleezza Rice and other women in the Bush administration, Eisenstein detects and denounces a strategy of global domination that uses demagogic capturing of democratic discourse. His innovative political thinking may be disconcerting, but it undoubtedly contributes to the clarification of the various feminisms and to a global reconfiguration of democracy.
