Zapatista Women

The Zapatistas, known also as the EZLN, are regarded as insurgent heroes to many in Latin America. Their effort to change the lives of indigenous women is the topic, among others, of my recent interview with author Hilary Klein.

Klein lived in Chiapas for several years and her book, Companeras, is the product of many voices, including encouragement by EZLN leaders to write it. You can hear our discussion, which aired on radio station WBAI.
