Feminism in Cuba, 1898-1958 Digital Archive

Alternative Titles
Lynn Stoner Collection
Cuban feminism
Description

This collection draws on rich primary sources-texts, personal letters, journal essays, radio broadcasts, memoirs from women’s congresses-which allow these women to speak in their own voices. The documents, most of which are in Spanish, fall into three categories: works by feminists about feminists and their causes, works by men on the status of women, and literary works by feminist writers that illustrate or discuss the condition of women.
