The purpose of this essay is to show how Frida Kahlo was ahead of her time in the women?s movement, how she was politically active when most women had little to no voice in men?s politics, and how her role as a woman helped shape the history of Mexican art, while at the same time having a strong influence on the Communist movement in the struggling nation.

From the Paper:

"When she was eighteen, Frida Kahlo was a victim in a very serious bus accident which left her bedridden because of a series of broken bones including her spinal column, collarbone, ribs, pelvis and more than ten separate fractures throughout her right leg. Her right foot had been completely crushed and her shoulders both were severely dislocated. For more than a month she had to be confined by wearing a heavy plaster casing to aid her body's healing. To stem off boredom, her family placed a large mirror at the top of her bed and provided her with her first paints."
