Abstract

Historical and literary scholars have become increasingly interested in women’s roles in and approaches to war. In times of conflict, French and francophone women have made crucial contributions in aid of the patrie, but wars have also set women against the governing powers, frequently forcing them to choose between their concerns as women, and the economic and social demands of their belligerent nations. This volume, the proceedings of the 9th UK Women in French conference entitled ‘Les femmes et la guerre’, brings together scholars from different academic disciplines – history, sociology, politics, literary criticism and gender studies – who explore the impact of war upon women in French and francophone societies.
