Synopsis

Step across the Green Line in Cyprus and you defy the political leaders who seek to control movement. But more and more ordinary Cypriots are challenging the validity of Partition. As Cyprus joins the European Union, can Greek and Turkish-speaking Cypriots put their violent past behind them and build a multicultural and gender-equal society?



Based on action research among Cypriot women, this study documents the life of a remarkable women`s project. The women take protest onto the streets, calling for peace and the inclusion of women in building a new Cypriot society. Cyprus, past and present, is a microcosm of wider social processes. A line has been destructively drawn, over decades, between two so-called ethnic groups. Over millennia, a similar line has been scored between women and men.



The book will be a valuable resource for all those who analyse, teach about and resist gendered and ethnicized war, not only in the Eastern Mediterranean but much further afield.

Cynthia Cockburn, a feminist researcher and writer, lives in London where she is Visiting Professor in the Department of Sociology at City University and active in the international anti-militarist network Women in Black. She is known for writings based on empirical social research, and for an approach that grounds theory in the practice of labour or political action. She has contributed, over quarter of a century, to the literature on gender and technology, the labour process and trade unionism, and transformative change in and through organizations. Her books include The Local State (1977), Brothers (1983), The Machinery of Dominance (1985), In the Way of Women (1991) and Gender and Technology in the Making (1993). Since 1995 her research has focused on gender in armed conflict and peace processes, particularly in Northern Ireland, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Israel/Palestine and Cyprus. Her most recent books are The Space Between Us: Negotiating Gender and National Identities in Conflict (Zed 1998); and (co-edited with Dubravka Zarkov) The Postwar Moment: Militaries, Masculinities and International Peacekeeping (2002).
