About the Author

Elizabeth Salas is Associate Professor of Chicano Studies at the University of Washington.


A historical account like this can be appreciated by scholars of all disciplines who are interested in providing a framework for the discussion of the patriarchal conception of 'woman.' It opens the door to the consideration of the history of women as one of resistance, assertiveness, and creativity. * Hispanic American Historical Review *
