Abstract

This paper provides an historical and sociological analysis of resistance activities by Greek women against the occupying forces of Axis powers from 1941-44. Motivated by social and political influence prior to the war, the egalitarian philosophies of the National Liberation Front and the dreadful socioeconomic conditions of the Axis occupation, Greek women effectively and proudly participated in resistance organizations.
