A Nation of Women: Luisa Capetillo

£11.99

In 1915, Puerto Rican activist Luisa Capetillo was arrested for wearing men’s trousers in public. This act of rebellion was the result of a lifelong devotion to socialist and feminist thought. And this zeal runs throughout her brilliant essays: in the challenges to big business, in her strident campaigning for the legalization of divorce, in the championing of ‘free love’. At once a sharp critique and a celebration of world politics, ‘A Nation of Women’ embraces humanism and envisions a world in which economic and social structures can be broken down, allowing both the worker and the woman to be free.
