Show Summary Details


This chapter analyses the place of the Church and cuadrilla in the development of Euskadi ta Askatasuna (ETA) in the 1950s and 1960s, looking at the roots of radical nationalism through the lens of gender by exploring some of the key institutions from which the movement emerged, including the Church. It suggests that ETA's early association of culture with the feminine opened the way for small numbers of women to participate in the new radical nationalism, while keeping largely intact gender divisions within the radical nationalist movement.

Keywords: ETA; Church; cuadrilla; radical nationalism; gender; culture; gender divisions
