In this two-part episode, we’ll be talking about Acehnese Women at War. In part 1, we’ll discuss the “Named” women, Cut Nyak Dhien and Cut Nyak Meutia, whose lives are fairly well-documented. Cut Nyak Dhien and Cut Nyak Meutia were two noblewomen turned guerilla fighters who were widowed twice and defied the Dutch colonizers to the very end of their lives.
In part 2, we’ll talk about the less known Acehnese women warriors: Pocut Meurah Intan, Pocut Baren, Cut Nyak Meuligoe, Teungku Fakinah, and Teungku Fatimah, as well as the “Anonymous” women, palace guards, guerillas, and combatants, whose names have long been lost to history.
