Women's Representations of the Occupation in Post-68 France by Claire Gorrara
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This text examines French women's writing and representations of the Occupation in post-68 France. It looks at the work of "The Women Resisters", those women who were adult resisters during the war, and "The Daughters of the Occupation", those who were born during or after the war period. The author argues that the older female generation's nascent awareness of how gender informs political activism is reworked into explicitly feminist representations of wartime France by younger women writers.
