Foreword

THIS BOOK PRESENTS NEW INSIGHT into an area of Mexican history heretofore not studied.

We must signal out the importance of untying knotty traditions that have stretched far beyond our colonial times. Woman's political life, in respect to man's, varies not only in the newness of the official recognition given her as a citizen, but also in the important consequences of her simple franchise.

Feminine action by its very nature acquires a sense of highly important security in both public and family life. Such a concept of values will be reflected naturally in the daily home duties, in the life of the offspring, and even in the activities of the husband. Relationship with the latter will have to acquire a non-equal progression of mutual intimacy.

Those of us who know our national history cannot in conscience deny the profound impact that women have had in all the historic aspects of our national life. There is daily increase in the number of women whose personal efforts affect the political, economical, social, and cultural life of Mexico. We cannot overlook, either, the fact that not all women are the same. But when we refer to the women of Mexico, we are including all of them, from the most humble and even the poorest mother to the best educated and well- prepared lady, whose very training is another new asset to the welfare of the country.
