Occupying Our Space

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

The University of Arizona Press
Occupying Our Space sheds new light on the contributions of Mexican women journalists and writers during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, marked as the zenith of Mexican journalism. Journalists played a significant role in transforming Mexican social and political life before and after the Revolution (1910–1920), and women were a part of this movement as publishers, writers, public speakers, and political activists. However, their contributions to the broad historical changes associated with the Revolution, as well as the pre- and post-revolutionary eras, are often excluded or overlooked.
Cristina Devereaux Ramírez is an assistant professor in the Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English (RCTE) graduate program in the Department of English at the University of Arizona.
