Berit von der Lippe - When Feminism Legitimizes War.
Researcher Berit von der Lippe in Rhetoric and Citizenship – Public Deliberation, writes that the role of Afghan women in the war rhetoric is one example of how people in power use the rhetoric of silence.
For me as a feminist it was a paradox to see howan ideology that has criticized the universal positions and demanded women’s right to self-representation was used to legitimize the decision to go to war. Most people know that this ultimately has to do with military strategy. It gives UN Resolution 1325 and its good intentions a precarious basis on which to build peace and security.
I’ve always questioned the loopholes within Western feminist rhetoric for ‘liberating’ women in Asia and beyond. Among those words, I will never forget the slogans for supporting the invasion of Afghanistan by women living in USA: “We are us and we are them.” Except they weren’t. They could never be in the same situation as the Afghan or even Iraqi women were and are. And it’s amazing, isn’t it? That the women USA regime(s) claimed to empower were never given a complete, whole, equal opportunity to speak for themselves and explain their wants and needs at proper length.
