Abstract

This paper examines the involvement of the Women's International Democratic Federation (WIDF) in the politics of the Greek Civil War (1946-1949). The article's specific focus is on the organisation's international campaigns for the end of state-sanctioned persecution of leftists, especially women, and the re-instatement of democracy in Greece, utilising the expanding human-rights system at the United Nations. It draws on selected WIDF and United Nations (UN) documents, in addition to primary and secondary materials relating to the cold war and the Greek Civil War. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
