It is an accessible and amenable text in Spanish designed for Middle and High School students and the general public, It covers the Mexican Indigenous period prior to 1492 through the first half of the XX century. The voices of women never before heard come to life as actors in the social, political and cultural milieu of Mexico. Many of these women were forgotten, degraded, or silenced by the official historiography. Its title Women in History/Stories of Women documents the participation of women as builders of the Mexican nationhood and identity. Their lives and stories are the legacy of the women of Mexico today and honor women of all times and places.
