Mothers Making Latin America utilizes a combination of gender scholarship and source material to dispel the belief that women were separated from—or unimportant to—central developments in Latin American history since independence.  -Presents nuanced issues in gender historiography for Latin America in a readable narrative for undergraduate students -Offers brief, primary-source document excerpts at the end of each chapter that instructors can use to stimulate class discussion -Adheres to a focus on motherhood, which allows for a coherent narrative that touches upon important themes without falling into a “list of facts” textbook style
