Olivia, Jo & Kitty,

Women Speak out about Conflict.

While the impacts of armed conflict the world over have a shocking familiarity - death, disability, rape, displacement, family separation and economic destruction - women's experiences are not uniform.

These testimonies reveal the views and experiences of women as fighters, participants, refugees, victims caught between warring factions, organisers for peace and rehabilitation, carers, and mothers, relatives and partners of the dead and the disappeared.

A CHORUS OF STONES.

Women's Press

£4.50

 

Susan,

The Private Life of War.

Few individuals have so deeply influenced the course of contemporary thought on women, the environment, pornography and violence as Susan Griffin.

Now, with A Chorus of Stones, Griffin takes a powerful, moving and lyrical look at the nature of war and gender, illuminating the interplay between private suffering and public tragedy.

Embracing diaries, interviews, art literature, psychology and historical documents, this original and mesmerising book resoundingly overthrows conventional Western ideas of the seperation of individual and universal, centering the domestic or 'feminine' and intimate world, and insisting on its significance in world events.

It is a gloriously written, intellectually startling, yet moving self-portrait of a world wavering between self-destruction and survival.

Monica,

Women at War Serbia 1915 - 1918

In 1941 a large number of British women doctors and nurses formed their own medical units for war service. But, as women, they were rejected by their own authorities, so they volunteered for service with Allied armies.

Nowhere was their courage and fortitude put to the test more savagely than in Serbia where bitter campaigns raged between 1914 and 1918 in circumstances the equal of those faced by Florence Nightingale in the Crimea. Hardback

Eileen,

The experiences of Women who Kill for their Political Beliefs.

"Shoot the women first" is a piece of advice given to police teams about to deal with terrorist incidents. Why?

Women Speak openly about what motivates them to kill. They describe their memories of acts of extreme violence. They talk of anger, fear and remorse. They speak of strengths and weaknesses of their male counterparts, and the right of women involved in every aspect of their cause. They talk of motherhood and murder, and of feelings a woman has to suppress when she pulls the trigger or detonates a bomb.

ARMS & THE WOMAN

Coronet

Kate,

Women: in cockpits, tanks and on the bridge. Officers, NCO's and Other ranks.

In the armed forces of the West, women are on the advance. No longer kept safely back behind lines, more and more they are up at the front, integrated, training with the men, living among men, fighting alongside men. Over 34,000 soldiers in the Gulf war were women.

  • But there is opposition:

  • Can they compete physically with men?

  • Are they aggressive enough?

  • Are they a sexual distraction, undermining morale?

  • Can they take command? Is it really right?

From teenage girls in the US Marines' boot camp to Canada's first female pilot and the first women to go to sea with the royal navy, women soldiers, officers and war veterans talk about life in this most masculine of worlds.

REILLY.

SCARS UPON MY HEART.

Virago

£1.75

 

Catherine, Ed,

Women's Poetry and Verse of the First World War.

This, the first anthology of women war poets for over 60 years, will come as a surprise to many. It shows, for example, that women were writing protest poetry before Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sasson, and that the view of 'the women at home', ignorant and idealistic, was quite false.

Many of these poems come out of direct experiences of nursing the victims of trench warfare, or the pain of lovers, brothers, sons lost.

Some of the poets are well known: Nancy Cunard, Rose Macauley, Charlotte Mew, Alice Meynell, Edith Nesbit, Edith Sitwell, Marie Stopes, Katherine Tynan; others will be less familiar. But here, as elsewhere, 'the poetry is in the pity' - a moving record of women's experience of war.
