The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) has struggled for freedom, justice and respect for indigenous dignity for decades. "Mujeres zapatistas y las luchas de género" chronicles the voice of women in their ranks who have struggled just as hard to free themselves from the limitations of community traditions and a patriarchal system imposed through generations. The work also compares this struggle to other social movements at local, national, and international levels, and highlights the Zapatistas' valuable contribution to women's rights and work to end gender-based violence. Contents include: "Realidad y resistencias", "El debate teórico", "Mujeres zapatistas y las luchas de género, en documentos y comunicados del EZLN", "El III encuentro de los pueblos Zapatistas con los pueblos del mundo. 'La comandanta Ramona y las Zapatistas'"
