Argentina experienced a devastating economic and political collapse in December 2001. In this book women take up the pen and the camera to capture the new reality. Silvina Frydlewsky's photos juxtapose the plight of Buenos Aires with its faded glory, and poets from all walks of life express their anguish and frustration. Essays discuss and illuminate the crisis from diverse perspectives, conveying what that moment meant for those who lived it. Sample lesson plans offer practical applications for teachers of Spanish, literature, Latin American Studies, and Women's Studies. Ideal for scholars, teachers, students, and anyone interested in Latin America, these pages put a human face on the crisis and revisit the chaos in the words and images of Argentine women.
