Monday, September 14 - Feminists Resisting Militarism

This week on Women's Magazine: Feminists Resisting Militarism

We feature an interview by Margaret Thompson of Feminist International Radio Endeavor (FIRE) with Daisy Flores, a young organizer/activist with the Honduran group Feminists in Resistance. Feminists in Resistance has been in the forefront of the nonviolent street protests which have raged throughout Honduras since the overthrow of president Manuel Zelaya by the military and Roberto Micheletti.

Kate Raphael talks with Zanne Joi of the women's peace group Code Pink about their campaign to Ground the Drones. Unmanned drones controlled from Creech Air Base in Nevada carry out lethal attacks on civilians in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Plus an update on the case of South African track star Caster Semenya, who was forced to undergo a battery of "gender verification" tests after winning the 800 meters at the World Championships in Germany. Last week, newspapers leaked the results of the tests, which ostensibly show that Caster is intersex.
