Abstract

Mujeres de la Patria explores the role Cuban women played before and during the Cuban wars of Independence.

Volume 1, Mujeres de la Patria: Contribución de la mujer a la independencia de Cuba. Guerra de los Diez Años published in 2014, covers the work of the mambisa during the Spanish domain and in the Ten Years War up and until the Zanjón Pact (1878). (498 pages)

In Volume 2 of Mujeres de la Patria: Contribucion de la mujer a la independencia de Cuba. Guerra de Independencia (1895-1898) published in 2018, we find the mambisa women that remained in the island during the 1895 insurrection. We will see them fighting in the fields or acting as messengers and spies in the cities, hiding materials in their houses and giving support to husbands, brothers, sweethearts and fathers in the years of the war. We also see them as nurses saving the lives of soldiers, and also the women of religious catholic communities that healed and assisted soldiers from both bands during the disasters, miseries and pain. (544 pages)

And in Volume 3, to be published in the near future, exiled Cuban women of the XIX century will be working at patriotic gatherings, collecting money for expeditions, and supplying the Liberation Army. These are the Cuban women that from Paris, Central America, South America and the United States, worked for Cuba's liberty. This trilogy is a tribute to Cuban women and to their trajectory throughout our history.
