Hopes and Struggles for Transformation: Reflections from an Iranian Feminist
Peggy Antrobus’ article, ‘Feminism as Transformational Politics’, shows how 11 September 2001 was a critical historical moment that exposed how deeply militarism, fundamentalism and patriarchy determine our world. In her analysis of patriarchy she calls for feminism to provide a new form of leadership in order to help the world crisis to be resolved. She envisages a new form of leadership that will create a world shaped by feminist approaches and principles. She asks that feminist scholars and activists join forces to construct such leadership.
