Abstract

This article is a revised version of a talk given at an international conference on the role of women in war which took place in 2003 at Coimbra University at which Ana Medeiros was one of the 3 guest speakers. This is the first article to compare the Algerian author-Djebar and her Portuguese counterpart-Jorge. Djebar has recently been elected to the prestigious French Academy and Jorge is one of the most radical post colonial authors published in Portugal today. Their work brings to light events related to the history of Algeria as a colony of France and Mozambique as a Portuguese colony and this piece examines the need for the role of women to be rewritten into the (his)tory of each nation.
