This article explores the feminist cosmopolitics of women's rights and solidarity campaigning, particularly those that focus on violence against women. I observe how in contrast to the mainstream theories of cosmopolitanism, feminist solidarity is an embodied cosmopolitics of emotion, affect and atmosphere. Emotion is an important register through which to examine feminist cosmopolitics: to not only demonstrate some of the successes and failures of such politics, but also to suggest that its inclusion in cosmopolitan literature might enable sharper attention to the contradictions that continue to plague the political credentials of cosmopolitanism.
