The history of women guerilla fighters in the Zimbabwean National Liberation war (1965-80), this book provides an examination of the many different groups of women who joined the armed struggle and contributes to a feminist understanding of Zimbabwe and African history and politics. Most previously published accounts of this event in history have tended to focus on the """"feminine"""" or """"natural"""" role women played in it, ignoring the experiences of female guerilla fighters. This book redresses the balance, giving voice to a previously unsung group of women.

Synopsis:

As the history of women guerilla fighters in the Zimbabwean National Liberation war (1965-80), this book provides an examination of the many different groups of women who joined the armed struggle for national independence and contributes to a feminist understanding of Zimbabwe and African history and politics. Most previously published accounts of this event in history have tended to focus on the "feminine" or "natural" role women played in it, ignoring the experiences of female guerrilla fighters. This book redresses the balance, giving voice to a previously unsung group of women. The text allows women to describe their own history while providing a detailed analysis of the history of the struggle from a gendered perspective, and is original in its use of multi-media sources of information and representations in which women guerrilla fighters have been featured.
