Facts About The Mexican Revolution ..
The Mexican Revolution was one of the great revolutionary changes of the 20th century beginning in 1910. The Mexican Revolution broke out in 1910 when the decades-old rule of President Porfirio Díaz was challenged by Francisco I. Madero, a reformist writer and politician. When Díaz refused to allow clean elections, Madero's calls for revolution were answered by Emiliano Zapata in the south and Pascual Orozco and Pancho Villa in the north.
Before the Mexican Revolution, Mexican women were relegated to a traditional existence, working in the home and in fields with their men and wielding little political, economic or social clout. With the strife of revolution came an opportunity for participation and many women joined up, serving as writers, politicians and even soldiers. Zapata's army, in particular, was known for the number of female soldiers or “soldaderas” among the ranks and even serving as officers. Women who participated in the revolution were reluctant to return to their quiet lifestyle after the dust settled, and the revolution marks an important milestone in Mexican women's rights.
