In it, Julie Koser sheds new mild on how women’s our bodies grew to become a battleground for competing social, cultural, and political agendas in a single of the most pivotal sessions of contemporary heritage. She lines the ladies warriors in this work as reflections of the social and political weather in German-speaking lands, and she or he finds how literary texts and cultural artifacts that highlight women’s armed rebellion perpetuated the false dichotomy of "public" as opposed to "private" spheres alongside a gendered fault line. Koser illuminates how reactionary visions of "ideal femininity" competed with subversive fantasies of latest femininities within the ideological conflict being waged over the restructuring of German society.
