Abstract

It was not until women gained enough self-confidence and began to make their own demands did the issue of their liberation become an explicit and integral part of the Mozambique Revolution. The gradual recognition of the connection between the revolutionary process and the liberation of women constituted a fundamental part of the radical transformation of FRELIMO. The increasing militancy of women, symbolized by their demand to bear arms, set in motion a process which has altered relations of power between the sexes and compelled the FRELIMO leadership to treat the emancipation of women as an integral part of its post-independent socialist agenda.[Author]
