dc.description.abstract "Friendship in the women's movement has been enriching, nurturing, sustaining and life giving. The movement has provided emotional support, loyalty and comradeship. But at the same time, many women within the movement have experienced abrasive encounters, which have left ugly scars. It is not an exaggeration to say that while the movement is an oasis for many, it is also a terrain of struggle. The friendships within the movement have been the catalysts for the many gender and feminist organisations that have mushroomed everywhere across the continent during the last decade or so. But it is within the confines of these very structures that the personal alliances, built on a belief in a better life for women, turn into battlegrounds for power among women themselves." en_US
