Show Summary Details


This chapter extends the examination of feminism through an exploration of radical nationalist feminist organisations in the 1970s and 1980s and their often frustrated attempts to introduce a feminist agenda into radical nationalism. It argues that the vibrant nationalist feminism of the period 1977–82 was less successful in having its demands recognised by the wider radical nationalist movement than it was in campaigning around broader feminist issues – most notably abortion rights and violence against women. The chapter also analyses the interviewees' mixed memories of feminism and discusses that factors that contributed to the emergence of Basque nationalist feminism.
