[T]he so-called war on terror has not only been disastrous in terms of its devastating impact on the populations of Iraq and Afghanistan, the infrastructures and quality of lives, and a drastic deterioration of women’s rights despite the rhetoric of democracy and women’s rights, but it has also let to new rifts and fragmentations in antiwar movements on the one hand and feminist movements on the other. . . I have been anti-sanctions, anti-war and anti-occupation.” (“A Feminist Perspective on the Iraq War", SOAS 2011; photo Wikipedia)
