In this book Mary Nash studies the role and experiences of Republican women in the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), and analyzes their valuable contribution in the rear as well as the heroic achievements of political leaders and women who fought in the front. For many of them, participating actively in that struggle was a liberating experience after having been isolated from public and political life. As they gained confidence in their own abilities, these women began to question their traditional role in society and the limitations imposed on them by reason of their sex. Based on extensive research by the author, as well as her interviews with women activists in the Spanish Civil War, this book evaluates the significant participation of women in the anti-fascist struggle against Franco and introduces the reader to the complex reality of war and violence.
