(p.173) 6 Authority
Feminist Dialogues on International Law

Gina Heathcote

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 examines what authority is given to specific feminist actors to speak and what authority is imagined lying within the domain of legal acts. A study of the convergence of the women, peace, and security agenda and the counterterrorism agenda is offered in this chapter, as is a study of alternative sites of feminist engagement with law, from the use of protest in Uganda to the manipulation of digital spaces by Chinese feminist activists. Connecting to the larger theme of the book as a feminist dialogue, the chapter evolves into a study of how different discourses converge to give the author voice and authority, questioning whose silences that authority depends upon. The chapter draws upon Black British feminists and indigenous Australian authors to question white, Western feminist’s complicity in the production of privilege and to explore the steps that are necessary to commence feminist dialogues on international law.

Keywords:   indigenous feminisms, Black British feminisms, counter-terrorism, feminist protest, digital activism, politics of listening
