Banning the bomb, smashing the patriarchy
Ray Acheson challenges the foundation of international security to raise one simple question: do nuclear weapons really keep us safer? Her ambition: show that the nuclear arms race is a manifestation of masculine power and dismantle the supposed natural order of things to build a more secure and peaceful world. Ray Acheson is the Director of Reaching Critical Will, the disarmament programme of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. She took part in the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017.
