This collection, compiled from Cuban sources, spans the period from
Cuban independence to the end of the Batista regime. The collection
sheds light on Cuban feminism, women in politics, literature by Cuban
women and the legal status of Cuban women.
The documents in this collection, most of which are in Spanish, fall into three categories: works by feminists about feminists and their causes, works by men on the status of women, and literary works by feminist writers that illustrate or discuss the condition of women.
