Biography

Mexican revolutionary, journalist and feminist, often referred to in the press as the Mexican Joan of Arc. She gave her vocal support to the liberal-radical Partido Liberal Mexicano (PLM) opposing the dictatorship of President Porfirio Díaz (1876–1911), during the Mexican Revolution of 1910–1917. She was originally from Lampazos de Naranjo, Nuevo León, Mexico, but was forced to flee with her sister Teresa to Texas where she published two newspapers from exile in San Antonio, the feminist newspaper La Mujer Moderna (The Modern Woman, 1910) and the revolutionary El Obrero (The Worker). She returned to Mexico after the fall of Diaz and died in a military hospital in Monterrey on 19 January 1963, the day before her 82nd birthday.
