What Is Violence?

WILPF and Decolonization

(p.56) Chapter 4 What Is Violence?
Intelligent Compassion

Catia Cecilia Confortini

Oxford University Press

This chapter follows WILPF’s policies on decolonization. The chapter argues that an early 1970s’ resolution on the inevitability of violent revolutions, unprecedented until then, resulted from a shift in ideological beliefs. Though the international environment of the 1960s and 1970s favored this shift, WILPF arrived at its new policies thanks to an increasing reliance on feminist critical methods. The chapter highlights the origins of the profound disagreements within the organization on this issue and the practices that allowed for their resolution.
