Soldaderas

Soldaderas is an homage to the untold, heroic stories of Mexican womxn since the Revolutionary War of 1910. These womxn have a legacy of creating agency for themselves during a time when they had none. They were influential writers, journalists, scholars, fighters, leaders, educators, and much more. Yet their stories are rarely recognized as contributors during a pivotal time in Mexico’s history. It is my hope that this body of work re-ignites their history so that their legacies will not be forgotten.
