A Note on the Text: Resisting Bodies: Narratives of Italian Partisan Women is a translation of texts that explore the experience of partisan women in Italy between 1943 and 1945. The authors have selected short stories and excerpts from novels and autobiographies that raise or address the question of gender within the partisan experience. These texts provide the American reading public with a long-needed access to the experience of World War II from a perspective that history and literature have often considered marginal.
