Women Rising

Mohja Kahf

NYU Press

“Stop the Killing” and “Brides of Peace” are two campaigns initiated by Syrian women to revitalize nonviolent resistance in Syria, in response to the militarization within the Syrian revolution and the rise of Islamist extremist militias. In this chapter, Mohja Kahf, professor at the University of Arkansas, seeks to understand how these campaigns put women back at the forefront of civil disobedience, stumped the regime, and rallied the values of the original protest movement of Syria.

Keywords:   nonviolent resistance, Syrian revolution, Mohja Kahf, Stop the Killing, Brides of Peace
