About

Overview

This unique collection, compiled from Cuban archives, contains documents that cannot be found elsewhere in the U.S. or Latin America. Spanning the period from Cuban independence to the end of the Batista regime, the collection sheds light on Cuban feminism, women in politics, literature by Cuban women, and the legal status of women.

The documents in the Stoner Collection, all of which are in Spanish, fall into three categories: works by feminists about feminists and their causes, works by men on the status of women, and literary works by feminist writers that illustrate or discuss the condition of women. Among the publications are Aspiraciones (1918), an early feminist journal published by the Partido Feminista Aspiraciones; La Mujer Moderno (1926), the journal for the Club Femenino de Cuba, the oldest Cuban feminist organization; and La Mujer (1929-1931), the journal of the Partido Demócrata Sufragista, focusing on the entire Cuban feminist movement.
