Capital Mothers: Environmental Politics in Gioconda Belli's El país de las mujeres

136 Doudna Hall

This Faculty Forum will focus on the link between Latin American women's increasing participation in politics and an environmental ethic, as glimpsed in the Nicaraguan novelist Gioconda Belli's novel "El país de las mujeres." In particular, we will trace how women utilize their previous domestic role to justify a stronger voice in support of their environmental integrity in Latin America.
