Women’s Movements in Latin America
Download Full Text
"The trajectory of women's mobilization in contemporary Latin America incorporates both important gains and ongoing challenges... The chapter first explores mobilization of women in the 1970s and 1980s against authoritarian regimes and in favor of nationalist, class-based causes. It examines how women's experiences of political opportunity structures, movement recruitment, framing, and identity-linked grievances have differed from those of male-dominated movements."
