Indomitable Women

Elena Poniatowska

NON FICTION. PLANETA, 2016. 262 PAGES.

Contemporary society is riven by social struggle, especially that of women, who raise their voices from the trenches and will never give up. Women refusing to accept the status quo stand out from the crowd: mothers, soldiers, writers, domestic workers, but women above all.

Las indómitas (Indomitable Women) pays tribute to the anonymous women who fought in the Revolution, the inimitable Jesusa Palancares and silent woman soldiers. It embodies the essence of Nellie Campobello, Josefina Vicens and Rosario Castellanos, who made a place for themselves in a literary period dominated by men. While the disappearance of Alaíde Foppa represents the harsh reality of Latin America, the neverending struggle of Rosario Ibarra de Piedra gives voice to the mothers of the disappeared while the feminist campaign of Marta Lamas rethinks what it means to be a woman in the 21st Century.
