Abstract

Despite the expression of lofty sentiments by the president of FRELIMO, merely becoming involved in the revolutionary struggle against colonial capitalist oppression did not automatically liberate women from exploitative relationships. Rather, those women who chose to join the liberation movement, found themselves having to combat not only the external enemy, but also the prevailing sexist attitudes and discrimination within FRELIMO.
