Author: Rita Valdivia

Rita Valdivia died in combat just after her 23rd birthday. In a pre-feminist era and before she was 17, Rita named and escaped domestic violence. Not yet 20, she wrote poems that continue to astonish.

LA COMANDANTE MAYA reveals the life and legacy of one of the many women involved in an effort that, up to now, has publicized only a token female presence.
