The Fruitful and Conflictive Relationship between Feminist Movements and the Mexican Left

This article describes the Mexican feminist movement over the last four decades as a multifaceted entity situated on the periphery of a multi-centered patriarchy. Espinosa’s analysis emphasizes the popular and indigenous feminist currents, which are omitted from a historiography of Mexican feminism that tends to focus on historical feminism, a branch that emerged during the 1960s in liberal middle-class urban sectors. The author argues that the multiplicity of paths contained in the movement is born of tense but rewarding relationships between distinct feminist currents and between them and the social Left.
