Introducing the book: Pető Andrea, professor at CEU

This volume features 66 women who participated in the 1956 Revolution as freedom fighters, Red Cross activists, or distributed food supplies or flyers. Some of the women are little-known, while others are famous revolutionaries, such as Ilona Tóth and Mária Wittner, both of whom divide public opinion to this day.
