This report chronicles the key discussion points of the Strategic Conversation on Militarism and Violence Against Women, convened by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University from June 9-11, 2011. The meeting brought together thirty feminist activists, academics and experts from around the world to: (i) identify and explore feminist perspectives of militarism; (ii) examine the intersections between militarism and violence against women; and (iii) develop global feminist strategies to challenge militarism. Discussions of the role of state actors as perpetrators of sexual and gender-based violence highlighted the issue of impunity. Finally, the meeting concentrated on identifying strategies that the women’s, peace, and human rights movements can employ to both address and eliminate the links between violence against women and militarism. This report highlights specific, agreed upon strategies for action under each thematic area.
