meanings of Mexico s favorite folk ballads..." Journal of Third
Challenging the stereotypical view of the passive
Mexican/Chicana woman of the archetype, the author examines the
portrayal of female figures in over three thousand corridos or
Mexican ballads and shows that in spite of long-dominant
patriarchal ideology, the corridos reveal the presence of
self-confident women throughout Mexican history. Included are a
discography, a detailed bibliography of corrido collections, and
several photographs of soldaderas from the internationally famous
Augustin Casasola collection."
