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.

Book Description Africa Research Publications, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Guns and Guerilla Girls: Women in the Zimbabwean Liberation Struggle is about women guerilla fighters in the Zimbabwean National Liberation war (1965-1980). It provides an examination of the plethora of representations of women who joined the struggle for national independence and contributes to a feminist understanding of Zimbabwe and African history and politics.Most previously published accounts about women s roles in the Zimbabwean liberation struggle have tended to focus on their feminine or natural roles as mothers or alternatively on the post-independence concerns expressed by women in Zimbabwe. Both of these views have ignored and excluded women s actual experiences of guerilla fighting.Guns and Guerilla Girls is the first text to both challenge the representations of women as warriors and provide a space for women ex-combatants in Zimbabwe to re-present their past and their histories. The text is also original in its aim to create a dialogue within postcolonial discourse in order to facilitate understanding and healing vis--vis women s war time experiences.The book deals specifically with the case of the Zimbabwean liberation struggle, and provides an in-depth analysis of the different experiences women have of war when they take up arms to fight for their nation and liberation. The text allows women to describe their own history while providing a detailed analysis of the history of the struggle from a gendered perspective. Seller Inventory # BZV9781592211678
