Women and ETA

Carrie Hamilton

Manchester University Press

This chapter focuses on those women who were directly active in Euskadi ta Askatasuna (ETA), including in the military front, from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s. It analyses the gender roles, relationships and politics inside ETA, as well as evidence of women's changing activities and media representations of female ‘terrorists’ during this period. The interview with two female activists from different generations reveals ways in which these activists constructed personal and political identities within a set of ideas in which militarism was associated with masculinity and pacifism with maternity.

Keywords:   women terrorists, ETA, military front, gender roles, female activists, personal identities, political identities, militarism, masculinity, pacificism
