Interviews with Mexican Women: We Don’t Talk About Feminism Here presents a series of conversations with Mexican women representing a wide geographical range within Mexico. The interviews broach current social issues and discuss their correlation to the Mexican feminist movement of the 1970s and 1980s. This unique project focuses on cultural, political, economic, and social topics as they pertain to Mexican women impacted (or not) by the women’s struggle in Mexico to achieve gender equality in their country.
This book offers a rare insight into feminist influence on many areas of social life, and will be a vital text for students and researchers in Gender Studies and Mexican or Latin American Studies.
