Professor Cynthia Enloe is a world-renowned feminist theorist and writer known for her work on gender and militarism. She joins the Mobilising Men For Feminist Peace Podcast on militarised empires around the world.

In this episode we discuss:

  • why feminism is an important framework to understand the world,
  • what role masculinities play in the military and militarised empires,
  • what militarised masculinities look like in the US today, and
  • why we need to fight for feminist issues even during war.

“There is nothing automatic about becoming an adult male and soldiering. It’s a choice. And it’s a choice you don’t have to make.” – Cynthia Enloe

In the below clip from the podcast, Cynthia Enloe shares a lesson learned from Ukrainian feminists.

Mobilising Men for Feminist Peace is a podcast from WILPF, the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, in which we uncover the transformative power of feminist peace and explore how men can be active proponents of achieving gender equality and peace.

The hosts of the podcast are Dean Peacock, Project Director of the WILPF’s initiative on men and militarism and Reem Abbas, Communications Coordinator for the Mobilising Men for Feminist Peace Programme.

Cynthia tells us that we have to fight misogyny at all times and even during conflict.
