This book compares two ideologically opposed examples of women's movements in Chile. It studies the women who mobilized
against the democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende (1970-1973) and those who mobilized against
the military dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990). The study documents and explains the similarities
that exist between these two very different movements in terms of the moment at which they emerge and the way in which
they frame their demands.
