At the heart of Voices of Resistance are the testimonies of thirteen women who fought for human rights and social justice in their communities. Some played significant roles in the Cuban Revolution of 1959 that overthrew Batista, while others organized grassroots resistance to the seventeen-year Pinochet dictatorship in Chile. Each woman's story helps break the silence of generations of marginalized Latin American women. The bond that these women have is not simply that they have suffered; they share a commitment to resisting violence and confronting inequities at great personal risk. Together, they represent a women's movement in Latin America that has the potential to reshape the region's political future.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Recipient of an outstanding book award from the Gustavus Myers Center." --


"Maloof's juxtaposition of Cuban women's memories of participation in the Revolution with more recent stories that Chilean women tell of their political resistance is original and intriguing." -- Amy Kaminsky


"There women bear witness and serve as agent -- not just mere representative -- of a collective memory and identity constructed in social movements against oppression and exploitation." -- Choice


"Contains the testimonies of thirteen Cuban and Chilean women who fought for human rights and social justice in their communities." -- Educational Book Review


"From active roles in the Cuban Revolution to grassroots resistance against Pinochet, these women have also worked tirelessly for women's and workers' rights. Finally, these voices -- despite attempts to silence them -- can now be heard." -- Feminist Bookstore News


"More than narratives of personal experience, each was a testimony on the way historical events had impacted their daily lives -- in most cases, with tragic results.... An important book." -- Journal of the West
