(p.3) Chapter 1 What Is Feminist Peace?
Intelligent Compassion

Catia Cecilia Confortini

Oxford University Press

This chapter starts with a discussion about international relations (IR) theory’s understandings of peace as well as the relationship between peace and feminist IR, pointing at the need both to be concerned about peace and to revisit its relationship to feminism. It highlights the importance of analyzing women’s peace activism to draw lessons for IR and feminism as well as the uniqueness of WILPF for this type of project. This is followed by historical background on WILPF, from its origins to the end of the Second World War. Finally, it locates the organization in the context of the post–WWII international liberal order as it was being shaped by the United States and its allies.

Keywords:   peace studies, international relations, WILPF, women’s peace activism, liberal order
