Tinker Symposium Presentation by History's Maria Concepcion Marquez Sandoval on Thursday, November 5, 2015, 10:45a - 12:15p, Presidio Room

"Behind the Men of Power: Women's Role in 20th Century Mexican Army" describes the gradual growth of women in one of the most important institutions in Mexico.  It explains the way and the reasons why their numbers have increased in a male predominant organization during the last two decades, going from more traditionally women-related activities such as nurses and secretaries, to combative positions like artillery, engineering, military police, as well as air and elite forces.  it is a project that seeks to alleviate the lack of original studies addressing women in Mexican army, a relatively recent phenomenon that has yet to be properly studied.
