This chapter draws extensively on the four studies presented above, but also employs information from first-hand accounts of many women involved in the movements. Most of these are found in the Yemeni Arabic press, often published on the occasion of national holidays when women are invited to reflect retrospectively on their experiences and roles in the revolutions. Other accounts are collected from published interviews, for example, Marta Paluch's collection (published 2001) of interviews with several Yemeni women, among which were major female figures in the movement. Molyneux (1979) similarly interviewed some of the leadership in the southern socialist and nationalist women's movement during the 1970s. Finally, an anthology edited by Badran and cooke, Opening the Gates: an Anthology of Arab Feminist Writing(2004), includes an interview with Amat al-Aleem al-Souswa and an account by Ra'ufa Hassan about her life and feminist activism during the 1970s and 1980s.
