Through the Eyes of Rebel Women

THROUGH THE EYES OF REBEL WOMEN: The Young Lords, 1969-1976 is the first book about the experiences of the women members -- a "story within a story" told from the inside out. The Young Lords Organization emerged in New York in the late sixties to fight poverty, racial and gender inequality, and the colonial status of Puerto Rico. Women in the Young Lords organized to build a people's movement and fought the "revolution within the revolution" believing that women's equality was inseparable from the society's progress as a whole.Written and edited by Iris Morales, THROUGH THE EYES OF REBEL WOMEN consists of essays, interviews, and primary source documents. Morales chronicles the revolutionary rise of the Young Lords, the role and contributions of women, the opening of branches in Puerto Rico, and the group's demise.Personal interviews with former women members conducted for the film ¡Palante, Siempre Palante! The Young Lords have been edited for the book. Photographs of the Young Lords and articles written from 1969 through 1973 complete the volume. The entire narrative affirms that social movements do not develop in a vacuum but arise to spearhead solutions to the injustices occurring in society.
