This analysis of four contemporary novels by Latin American women writers - "Tierra Inerme" by Cuban writer Dora Alonso; "Hasta no Verte Jesus Mio", by Mexican Elena Poniatowska; "Cenizas de Izalco" by Salvadoran Claribel Alegria and Darwin Flakoll; and "La Casa de los Espiritus" by Chilean Isabel Allende - uncovers a common discourse of female solidarity against tyranny in the form of dictatorial governments, class domination and ethnic inequality, as well as patriarchal abuse. Providing a thorough historical background, Maureen Shea traces the protagonists' growing resistance to personal and political marginalisation, and analyses female bonding as a force against oppression. This study aims to provide a contribution to the study of both literature and gender studies in Latin America, as well as Latin American history and politics.
