This paper discusses the role of women during the Mexican Revolution, and how this conflict affected and changed their lives. The paper highlights how women took on the roles of soldiers and even leaders during the Revolution, and how this worked to overcome the subservience imposed upon their gender for centuries. In particular, the author cites the soldaderas, large groups of women who traveled with the respective revolutionary armies and provided care in terms of providing meals, nursing, and laundry services. The paper also examines the role of female intellectuals during the revolution. The author concludes that in each of the various roles, a particular progression emerges in terms of the reinvention of women and their paradigms in Mexican society.
