Una revuelta sin imágenes

Pilar Monsell


One of the most unknown uprisings in our history, the Bread Mutiny, was led by women in the city of Córdoba during the month of May 1652. We do not know the faces or names of those women. There is no image. How to recover the gestures of resistance of those whom we have not been able to see?
