Feminism as Transformational Politics: Towards Possibilities for Another World

  • Peggy Antrobus


Another world is possible … but only if we seriously address the intolerance and injustice that generate the crises that plague the world today. There is a high level of consensus about these crises. Indeed, they are so well-recognized that they have the familiarity of a mantra: increasing gap between rich and poor within and between nations and the spread of poverty; increasing violence at all levels; the spread of religious fundamentalism and attacks on women’s rights; HIV/AIDS; continuing environmental degradation. All of these were evident before September 11. The attacks on targets in the USA and the US-led response simply serve to exacerbate them while distracting attention and deflecting resources from them.1
