Women, Nationalism and War: "Make Love Not War"

Hypatia 8 (4):113 - 126 (1993)
Abstract
I analyze the relationship between women and nationalism and argue that women's identity and relationship to the "Other" is different from that of men, hence even when women participate in nationalism it is in a less violent form. I argue, further, that the structures of nationalism are fundamentally homosocial, and antagonism toward women of one's own nation is one of the first forms of attack on the "Other," and is constitutive of "extreme nationalism.".
