Algeria: Women At War
A film produced by Parminder Vir
England, 1992, 52 minutes, Color, DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99009
ALGERIA: WOMEN AT WAR offers a rare insight into the key role Algerian women played in their country’s liberation struggle from the French thirty years ago and their equally important place in today’s politics. Produced for Channel Four Television, this high-quality documentary uses a combination of interviews and archival footage to ponder the position of women in Algeria in the light of thirty years of single party rule, the rise of Islam and increasing political violence. It raises critical questions about the balancing act between women’s and national liberation struggles.


    “A revealing, historical argument on how equality for women in wars of liberation cracks open the fault lines between national independence, democracy, and fundamentalism in post-colonial nations.”
    Patty Zimmerman
    Ithaca College
