This chapter considers the woman's—particularly the civilian woman's—perspective in processing the aftermath of war and the human costs it entails. It examines the relentless feeling of “dis-ease” that has been felt after the war is over—the trauma that the soldiers have endured, the political ramifications in the aftermath of conflict, calls for activism, and so on. The chapter focuses on one form of activism in particular—the CODEPINK alert—which calls for people to “wage peace.” From here the chapter explores the gendered associations of the color pink and how it aids in the cause of peace, if not of feminism and women's political action, both of which are also discussed in detail.

Keywords:   feminism, trauma, peace, activism, CODEPINK, pink, women, civilians
