THROUGH THE EYES OF REBEL WOMEN: The Young Lords, 1969-1976 is the first account about the experiences of women members — a "story within a story" told from the inside out. The Young Lords emerged in the late sixties to fight poverty, racial and gender inequality, and the colonial status of Puerto Rico. Women joined to build a people's justice movement and fought the “revolution within the revolution” believing that women’s equality was inseparable from the society’s progress as a whole.
Written and edited by Iris Morales, THROUGH THE EYES OF REBEL WOMEN consists of essays, interviews, and primary source documents. Morales chronicles the revolutionary rise of the Young Lords, the role and contributions of women, the opening of branches in Puerto Rico, and the group's demise.
Dr. Edna Acosta-BelÚn, distinguished historian and women’s studies scholar, writes: “These women activists are ... the brave feminist warriors who battled for equality in intersecting (not isolated or separated) arenas of class, race, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality; part of that noble league of defenders of universal human rights.”
Ericka Huggins, human rights activist, former Black Panther Party member, and political prisoner, summarizes: “As I read this book, I was continually inspired by the history of the Young Lords and the great women within it. Iris Morales writes a story that parallels the story of the women in the Black Panther Party and women throughout the globe. The structural and interpersonal work we must do to uplift humanity always starts from the inside out!”
Through the Eyes of Rebel Women is a must-read for everyone interested in the Puerto Rican and people's movements of the 1960s and 70s in the United States.
