An ethnography of women's involvement in the Palestinian resistance movement, drawing on interviews performed in the Shatila camp in Lebanon in the early 1980s."This study sketches a portrait of ordinary 'camp women' and politically active Palestinian women in Lebanon: the emergence of their political consciousness and its relation to feminist consciousness, how they are mobilized into political organizations and the tasks they perform, and what political activism implies for concepts of gender and gender relations." [From the introduction.]
