Puerto Rican Women's History: New Perspectives

Synopsis

A broad survey of topics on gender and the history of Puerto Rican women, both on the island and in the diaspora. Organized chronologically and covering the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, essays deal with issues of slavery, emancipation, wage work, women and politics, women's suffrage, industrialization, migration, and Puerto Rican women in New York. Reviewing thirty years of historiographical material, the editors and contributors provide the first comprehensive study in English of gender and the history of Puerto Rican women. It will be of interest to students and scholars of Latin American studies, Latino/a studies, Puerto Rican studies, women's studies, ethnic studies, and cultural studies.
