This chapter examines colonial and nationalist propaganda produced about women during the war, and how interviewees ignored, resisted or appropriated these gendered discourses, then and now. It also considers how potentially seismic social change in gender relations – increased contact between men and women as a result of war – has been subsequently made less socially disruptive through interviewees’ insistence on a pseudo-familial language of ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ when describing interactions between male and female participants.
