MERLO SOLORIO, Jorge Luis. Representations of the Sisters of Charity and of Secular Nursing in La Voz de México, 1870-1908. Estud. hist. mod. contemp. Mex [online]. 2023, n.66, pp.63-89.  Epub Apr 05, 2024. ISSN 0185-2620.

After the fall of the Second Mexican Empire, the radical conservative party with its catholic proclivities, manifested its ideals and aspirations through the periodical publication La Voz de México, leaving traces of its bisectional imagery within its pages. This article analyses the representations of the Sisters of Charity and of those who practiced secular nursing, exposing the gender paradigms which encouraged both esteem and discredit in regards to this practice, transpiring between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Keywords : Sisters of Charity; nursing; gender; Catholicism; Secularism.
