The end of the Cold War seemed to promise the end of a geopolitical praxis based upon theexclusion of difference. Theorists talked of fluidity, hybridity and an increasingly borderlessworld. However, the aftermath of September 11th showed all too clearly the persistent holdof images of a dangerous world where boundary maintenance was vital to security. While itwill initially focus on a critique of the texts and scripts of the geopolitics of the «war againstterror» in the spirit of «critical geopolitics», this paper will go on to develop a feministgeopolitics which puts bodies and everyday practices at the centre of geopolitics.

Keywords: Feminism, geopolitics, terror, boundaries, security.
