"If I Can't Bake, I Don't Want to Be Part of Your Revolution": CODEPINK's Activist Literacies of Peace and Pie
Dubisar, Abby M.
Community Literacy Journal, v10 n2 p1-18 Spr 2016
By focusing on the cookbook "Peace Never Tasted So Sweet," this article argues that CODEPINK strategically combines peace activist and food literacies to engage audiences in their antiwar efforts, strategies that take on benefits and drawbacks. Although feminist scholars from a variety of disciplines have studied cookbooks, researchers have yet to fully analyze the intersections of gendered activist literacies and cookbooks. Expanding upon arguments promoting food literacies as well as feminist analyses of cookbooks, this article illuminates CODEPINK's efforts to teach readers how to critique military action, recruit peace-workers, build a movement, "and" bake pie.
