Feminist interrogations

Feminist interactions with the global nuclear order have been sustained for many years. However, in recent years the feminist approach to nuclear politics has been largely ignored by research. Action from indigenous groups and those in the global south has been particularly neglected.

In this webinar, authors from International Affairs’ new special section share their views on how to reconceptualize the global nuclear order with a feminist and postcolonial lens.

The session explores research on indigenous women’s resistance to nuclear waste in North America, masculinity in the Cuban missile crisis, and what a feminist-Gandhian ethic could do for nuclearism in India.
