The objective of this research project is the reading and analysis of Deolinda Rodrigues Francisco de Almeida's (1939-?) diaries. She was a member of MPLA (People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola) since its foundation and of OMA (Organization of Angolan Women), a guerrilla fighter during the Angolan war of independence, and the author of many texts. The research proposes to indicate, through the investigation of the diaries, the social places available to subjects in Angola. It considers their interpellations during the period the Angolan liberation war and colonialism. The diary is relevant because it was published in its original version and thus retains its author's clear criticism of race and gender relations as well as the expression of her literary style and political stance.
