For a network held together by shared passion and aims, with no membership or organisational structure, Women in Black has reached surprisingly far and wide in just over thirty years. It began when Israeli and Palestinian women took a stand against the occupation of Palestine, it spread across Europe and to India, South Africa, North and South America, Armenia and beyond. Women in Black is worldwide and continues to work with imagination and determination for peace and justice.​ ​ Women in Black works with other feminist movements, builds on shared strengths, and develops joint actions. Its opposition to militarism draws on a critique of capitalism and imperialism. It brings women together across cultures, religions, and ethnicities with a shared analysis of gender relations, and how these intersect.​ This book has a bibliography, a contact list for Women in Black groups and allied organisations across the world.
