Abstract

The thematic focus of the twelft h volume of Aspasia—the international, peer-reviewed yearbook of women’s and gender history of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Eu- rope (CESEE)—is women and violence. Violence has shaped the historical experiences of women in the region in fundamental ways, both at the personal and state levels. We were interested in issues extending from war and state terror to domestic violence and other manifestations of violence in the personal sphere. From among the many submissions that arrived in response to our call, we se- lected a pair of closely connected articles that deal with gendered violence in the controversial Ukrainian nationalist movement from the 1930s to the 1950s. Both ar- ticles stem from the need to provide a counterdiscourse to the celebratory approach to the inclusion of women in the nationalist underground that prevails in Ukrainian historiography. Olesya Khromeychuk focuses on the militarization of women from the 1930s to the 1950s with the example of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army.
