War Against Women, Women Against War:
A Report Back From the World Social Forum

Violence against women manifests in both overt and covert forms: from rape used as a war tactic to women themselves participating in violence. On this edition of Making Contact, we feature three leading feminists: Egyptian sociologist Nawal El Saadawi, activist and author Arundhati Roy, and Saher Saba of the Revolutionary Association of Women in Afghanistan (RAWA, www.rawa.org). They discuss the disproportionate impacts that fundamentalism, colonization, and corporate globalization have on women. They spoke recently at the 2004 World Social Forum in Mumbai, India. -www.radioproject.org
