Mothers Making Latin America: Gender, Households, and Politics Since 1825
Mothers Making Latin America utilizes a combination of gender scholarship and source material to dispel the belief that women were separated from—or unimportant to—central developments in Latin American history since independence. The book presents nuanced issues in gender historiography for Latin America in a readable narrative for undergraduate students; offers brief, primary-source document excerpts at the end of each chapter that instructors can use to stimulate class discussion; and adheres to a focus on motherhood, which allows for a coherent narrative that touches upon important themes without falling into a “list of facts” textbook style.
