Know Before You Go, 'Cause There's No Reset Button

Know Before You Go, 'Cause There's No Reset Button is a collaboration with the Ya-Ya Network (Youth Activists-Youth Allies), a youth of color-led antimilitarist organization based in NYC. Our leaflet breaks down the enlistment contract and life in the military and provides new stats about sexual assault in the military, racial disparities in becoming an officer, and stop-loss. Written to be accessible to everyone while providing the most important info for making a fully informed choice about joining the military, this leaflet will be a staple for counter-recruiters.

Women Conscientious Objectors

Conscientious objectors are generally seen as male - as are soldiers. This book breaks with this assumption. Women conscientiously object to military service and militarism, not only in countries that conscript women - such as Eritrea and Israel - but also in countries without conscription of women. In doing so, they redefine antimilitarism from a feminist perspective, opposing not only militarism, but also a form of antimilitarism that creates the male conscientious objector as the "hero" of antimilitarist struggle.
