How women were mobilised in Eritrea’s liberation struggle

03-12 Women training with EPLF, liberated areas, 1980's – Version 2This is a most interesting and useful paper by Worku Zerai. Eritrean women and liberation

My only criticism: I could find no reference to one key promise the EPLF made to women who joined the armed struggle: that there would be no sex between the fighters.

It was on this basis that many families allowed their women to join.

And for years it was maintained.
