Mexican Women in Anahuac and New Spain:
Three Study Units
Doris Ladd, Institute of Latin American Studies, The University of Texas at Austin, 1979, Paperback.

The study unit topics are: Aztec roles of women, Women in Mexico City in the 16th century, and the life and writing of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. For each, a short introduction is followed by primary documents illustrating the content points. Reflective questions and writing activities end the section. Highly recommended for the High School student.
