The Women's Movement and the Transition to Democracy in Chile


Annie G. Dandavati

This book seeks to understand the causes for the rise of an independent women's movement in authoritarian Chile. It describes the mobilization of women against the Pinochet government and highlights women's interaction with traditional actors such as political parties during the democratic transition. It analyzes the success of the movement in carving a space for itself in the state, political parties and civil society.
