Join us for a skype discussion with political militant, intellectual and leader of the Young Lords, Iris Morales.
“Written and Edited by Iris Morales THROUGH THE EYES OF REBEL WOMEN: The Young Lords, 1969- 1976 is the first book about the experiences of the women members — a “story within a story” told from the inside out. The Young Lords Organization emerged in New York in the late sixties to fight poverty, racial and gender inequality, and the colonial status of Puerto Rico. Women in the Young Lords organized to build a people’s movement and fought the “revolution within the revolution” believing that women’s equality was inseparable from the society’s progress as a whole.
