The women's suffrage movement and feminism in Argentina from Roca to Peron.


The women's suffrage movement and feminism in Argentina from Roca to Peron.

Hammond, Gregory.

U. of New Mexico Press


267 pages




This history of the women's suffrage movement in Argentina from the turn of the twentieth century up to the 1947 granting of universal suffrage, documents the unique characteristics of feminist movements in the country and explores how competition between political factions led to the creation of the powerful Peronist women's movement of the 1950s. The work explores how conservative, ruling class feminists opposed Peron's decision to grant universal suffrage as a class wedge issue, and how socialist and anarchist feminists opposed Peron on the grounds that his actions were simply an opportunistic ploy to further his totalitarian agenda. Hammond is a professor of history at Austin Peay University, Tennessee.
