Show Summary Details


This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the role of women in the history of the Euskadi ta Askatasuna (ETA) and radical Basque nationalism. The book has shown that women's recruitment into and participation in ETA differed from those of men in the organisation's first few decades, as well as how these differences were shaped by the historical conditions of late Franco and transitional Spain, and how the gender politics of radical nationalism have shifted since the 1960s. This chapter also discusses gender politics of post-nationalism, and explains how the history of women in ETA can contribute to understandings of Spain's ‘memory wars’ at the turn of the millennium.

Keywords: women; ETA; Basque nationalism; Spain; gender politics; post-nationalism
