Images of Women in Hispanic Culture

Editor(s): Teresa Fernandez Ulloa
Contributors: Miguel Soler Gallo, Piotr Sobolczyk, Angélica Franken Osorio, Mara Favoretto, Lara Marino Altieri, Hugo Hortiguera,

Book Description

This book studies the ways traditional polarized images of women have been used and challenged in the Hispanic world, especially during the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century by writers and the media, but also in earlier time periods. The chapters analyze the image of women in specific political periods such as Francoism or the Kirchners’ administration, stereotypes of women in films in Mexico and Chile, and the representation of women in textbooks, among other topics. Contributions also show how two women writers, in the 17th and the 19th centuries, viewed the role of women in their society.
