The "Female Fighter Series" Launches at Guernica Magazine


Screen Shot 2016-12-13 at 3.32.16 PM.png"Leaving our arms does not mean leaving behind political activity and social awareness. We can have a political life from here, one without arms." - In Colombia, a female fighter talks about life after FARC in Difficult Forgiveness by Valeria Luiselli.

This piece is first in a new innovative series that pairs female writers with women who are fighting, or have fought, in armed resistance movements worldwide to bring to light the distinctive personalities, politics, and circumstances of participation. The Guernica series is in partnership with the Politics of Sexual Violence Initiative and V-Day. Subsequent essays will be published in 2017.
