Yet the many names given these women warriors--heroines, camp followers, Amazons, coronelas, soldatas, soldaderas, and Adelitas--indicates their ambivalent position within Mexican society. In this original study, Elizabeth Salas explores the changing role of the soldadera, both in reality, and as a cultural symbol from pre Columbian times to the present day. Drawing on military archival data, anthropological studies, and oral history interviews, Salas first explores the real roles played by Mexican women in armed conflicts.
