expand icon Abstract
In her work, Mexican American Woman Activists, Dr. Mary S. Pardo focuses on East Los Angeles, emphasizing the important role played by females, and the powerful influence of cultural symbols like motherhood and the Church. She suggests how such activism has innervated cultural identity and protected the Mexican American community. The records of the Mary Santoli Pardo Collection document her research and predominantly consist of correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs, interviews (three related audio cassettes), and various newsletters and flyers.
