In Guerra Senza Armi. Storie di Donne (1940-1945)

Author(s): Anna Bravo, Anna M. Buzzone

Edizioni Laterza , Roma and Bari, 1995, pp. 236

Bravo and Buzzone collect biographical recounts and other documents that narrate women’s history in war. The authors argue that war cannot be a way to achieve progress, and debate the use of violence and on the rejection of violence. They also stress the importance of not underestimating civil and unorganised forms of struggle alongside more common forms of organised forms of resistance, and of including more on the contributions of women in the organisation and study of resistance movements.
