Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the role of the family in the history of the Basque nationalist movement in the post-Civil War period, looking at the reproduction of Basque nationalism in the 1940s and 1950s, the years of the most intense Francoist repression, through the childhood and adolescent memories of narrators. It explores the different and changing place of women in relation to family life and argues that the family should not be considered a separate, private sphere, but must be understood in the context of the complex and changing relationship between private and public realms during the Franco dictatorship. This chapter also discusses the gender politics of early Basque nationalism and provides examples of those so-called independent women during this period.
