Abstract:Merely becoming involved in the revolutionary struggle against colonial capitalist oppression did not automatically liberate women from exploitative relationships. The increasing militancy of women, symbolized by their demand to bear anas, set in motion a process which has altered relations of power between the sexes and compelled the FRELIMO leadership to treat the emancipation of women as an integral part of its post-independent socialist agenda. Contents: women in colonial Mozambique -sexual exploitation - the 'law' of labour - FKELIMO's formative phase, 1962-1964 - rural worsen in the early phase of the struggle, 1962-1964 - women in the clandestine struggle - the armed struggle and the role of women - self-liberation in action -public equality, private inequality - women in the liberated zones.
