In the documentary, Calling the Ghosts—A Story About Rape, War and Women (1996), women name their experiences, some reject the identity of “victim” for “survivor,” and they memorialize their friends and families who died during the conflicts. Women have also teamed with lawyers and mental health professionals to establish women’s centers to treat rape survivors (Wallis, 1995, np). The director of one center said, “the first thing a traumatized woman needs to do is to tell her story…For many women, the usual support systems have broken down” (Wallis, np).
2004). Some NGOs go beyond basic health care and seek to enhance women’s wellness and mental health. An interesting example of this is Project Air in Rwanda and Eastern Congo that facilitates yoga classes for sexual violence survivors. Through yoga, “… something inside…[the women] began to stir, to shift. This was something below the level of thought, below the level of memory, below the level of conscious feeling even, but when it was sparked, it was as if… women became able to feel again and so love again the life that was in them” (The Story of Project Air, nd).
Although three Basque provinces were granted regional political autonomy in 1979, ETA’s violence increased. Political autonomy “was simply seen as a barrier to full independence from Spain” (MacDonald, 1991, 5). From 1978 to 1980, it is believed that ETA’s actions claimed the lives of 234 people, with 1980 being the bloodiest year on record. Although ETA traditionally had been a male-dominated organization reflecting the patriarchal nature of Basque society itself, after 1980 it became more responsive to women’s issues, integrating women into the organization and incorporating issues of gender equality into its political platforms, in part because of women in leadership positions (MacDonald, 1991).
