Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Political Writing. Latino/ Latina Studies. Luisa Capetillo is best known in popular culture as the first woman to wear men's trousers. The splash of recognition following her arrest and acquittal for her choice of clothing in 1915 overshadows her significant contributions to the women's movement and the anarchist labor movements, both in her native Puerto Rico and in the migrant labor belt that stretched along the Eastern United States, from Tampa to New York. This volume combines a facsimile of the original Spanish edition with the first English translation of Capetillo's landmark MI OPINION SOBRE LAS LIBERTADES, DERECHOS Y DEBERES DE LA MUJER, originally published in Spanish in 1911. MI OPINION is considered by many to be the first feminist treatise in Puerto Rico and one of the first in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Book News Annotation:

Capetillo (1879-1922) is best known for being arrested for wearing trousers in 1915, but she contributed significantly to the feminist and anarchist movements both in her native Puerto Rico and in the migrant labor belt along the east coast of the US. Here is a facsimile edition of her 1911 Mi opinión sobre las libertades, derechos y deberes de la mujer following a new English translation by West-Duran (Spanish, Northeastern U.). Neither version is indexed.
