In her latest book, "For a Just and Better World: Engendering Anarchism in the Mexican Borderlands, 1900-1938," Sonia Hernández tells the story of how Caritina Piña Montalvo and other Mexicanas in the Gulf of Mexico region fought for labor rights both locally and abroad in service to the anarchist ideal of a worldwide community of workers. Join us for a book discussion between the author, Sonia Hernández and University of Illinois Press Acquisitions Editor, Alison Syring.
