LAMAS, Marta. Rosario Castellanos, Feminist in her Own Words. LiminaR [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.2, pp.35-47. ISSN 2007-8900.

Based on an analysis of the journalistic reporting of Rosario Castellanos, this article rescues (o-- highlights) her importance as a pioneering intellectual of Mexican feminism. It defends the idea that her forceful, clear, and lucid reports demonstrate modern feminist thinking, turning on concepts of the effects of cultural mandates on female behavior, and supporting a critical look at the condition of women in Mexican society. In effect, Castellanos rejects the notion of victimization, instead stressing the need for women to stop being self-complacent; she proposes that women take responsibility for their own lives, thus developing and polishing ideas that are notably relevant and even radical today.

Palabras llave : Rosario Castellanos; feminism; women’s liberation movement; cultural behavior; journalism; Mexican culture.
