Overview

This book compares two ideologically opposed examples of women's movements in Chile. It studies the women who mobilized against the democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende (1970-1973) and those who mobilized against the military dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990). The study documents and explains the similarities that exist between these two very different movements in terms of the moment at which they emerge and the way in which they frame their demands.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In sum, this fascinating study will provide Latin American, women's studies, and social movement scholars with ample food for thought." Contemporary Sociology

"Political scientist Baldez examines the historic activism of Chilean woman from a fresh perspective.... Recommended." Choice

Booknews
Drawing from interviews during several trips to Chile throughout the 1990s with women leaders and followers in the anti-Allende and anti- Pinochet movements, and with other Chileans, Baldez (political science, Washington U., St. Louis) constructs a general framework to explain the emergence and evolution of women's protest movements.
