Summary/Abstract: We are an activist group and a feminist-antimilitarist network made up of women from different generations and different ethnic groups with different social statuses and various levels of education. We have different lifestyles and sexual identities. What we share is a rejection of all forms of war and violent politics, first those of the state and community in which we live and then all others. We share a commitment to women's visible and public resistance to all forms of patriarchy, nationalism, militarism, and fundamentalism. A varying number of people participate in Women in Black's street actions and other activities. Sometimes, there are only a few; sometimes, there are hundreds, depending on the political and social circumstances, the need, and other factors.
