In this chapter, I argue for the reinvigoration and expansion of research on feminist anti-nuclear activism. I draw on a diverse range of sources —from the vibrant literature on the Cold War women's peace camps, through postcolonial framings of anti-nuclear activism in Asia and the Pacific, to claims about feminist influence on the negotiation of a global ban on nuclear weapons. Sketching the contours of a bolder and more inclusive research agenda on feminist anti-nuclear activism, I advocate that feminist peace researchers should renew their engagement with, and contribution to, the struggle for a nuclear-free world.
