Women have been crucial participants in insurgencies in Assam, Manipur, Nagaland, Chhattisgarh and Kashmir. This book profiles former militants such as Lance Corporal Raisumai of the Bodo Security Force, and Nalini, a member of the rebel Kangleipak Communist Party. It also discusses suspected militants such as the Kashmiri schoolgirl Khalida, who was killed in 2007 for her alleged ties to the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
