ABSTRACT
An interview with Clark University Professor Cynthia Enloe, about her views on national and international politics and the U.S. government's war policies, is presented. She says former president George W. Bush used women's rights to justify the war in Afganistan but President Barack Obama emphasizes national security as the driver for military action, thus downplaying the valuable role women play in wars. Enloe claims that women are forced to send their men to war and then have to nurse the physically and mentally wounded resulting from war.
