Occupying Our Space

The Mestiza Rhetorics of Mexican Women Journalists and Activists, 1875–1942

The University of Arizona Press

Occupying our Space examines the contributions of Mexican women journalists and writers during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, marked as the zenith of Mexican journalism. Through her analysis of the women’s writings, Cristina D. Ramírez coins the phrase rhetorical puestos, or rhetorical public spaces, meant to create an authentic speaking arena for the women. Allowing the women to speak first, Ramírez deftly reframes the conversation about the rhetorical and intellectual role women played in the shifting political and identity culture in Mexico.
