NEW VOICES IN THE NATION, by Jane Hart
In Greece, the resistance movement during World War II involved an unprecedented opportunity for social and political change initiated by the National Liberation Front. Leaders envisioned postwar Greece as a popular democracy structured to allow a range of new voices to be heard. Believing in gender equality, they attempted to expand the category of "national citizen" to include women as well as men. The author describes, often in the words of Greek women, how lives were transformed by active participation in the resistance against the Germans and the anticommunist aftermath.
