No more tears sister: Sri Lanka, gender and militancy


Nida Ahmed

By incorporating personal testimonies and emotional expressions from people close to Rajani like her daughter, her husband, parents, and colleagues, it charts out her commitment to the principles of social justice, engagement with the revolution and Sri Lankan Civil War, and her subsequent disillusionment with militancy.
