About this book

This book examines how many women active in revolutionary movements develop feminist identities and how this identity simultaneously contributes to and conflicts with the struggle for women's emancipation.

Reviews

“The aim of the book is to show how feminist identity development and nationalism can be interlinked. … as a contribution to the bodies of literature on conflict and peace studies, gender studies, theory on nationalism and critical social movement theory, this book supplies the discourse of ‘women in war” with a fresh disrupting of the boundaries constructed around the representation of women in armed conflict.” (Annette Behrens, Interface, Vol. 7 (2), November, 2015)
