Course Schedule – Fall 2024 / Old Courses / WOMEN SPIES

Coordinators: Penelope Pi-Sunyer, Judy Hampson, Donna Ramer, Tamara Weinberg

The stories of hundreds of courageous women spies have been long hidden from reports of battles and war. Before and during World War II, both Allied and Axis powers trained and sent women to the war fronts in occupied territories, to conduct espionage, sabotage and reconnaissance.

Initially distrusted by male colleagues, they developed wide and effective networks of spies. Employment of women as spies, of course, reaches back in history. Fascinating books, movies and TV, both fiction and nonfiction, have captivated us with stories about individual women and organizations. Who were these women? How did they operate?
