About This Book

Labelled "Amazons" by the national press, women played a central role in the Huk rebellion, one of the most significant peasant-based revolutions in modern Philippine history. As spies, organisers, nurses, couriers, soldiers and even military commanders, women worked closely with men to resist the Japanese occupation and after World War II, to challenge the new Philippine republic. Vina Lanzona explores the Huk rebellion through the individual and collective experiences of its female participants. She demonstrates how the Huk women's presence raised complex questions of gender, family, and sexuality, and ultimately shaped the nature of the revolutionary struggle. With notes, bibliography and index.
