Based on an empirical study of a women’s movement in Arica, Chile, this exploration documents how this particular group organized to oppose Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. Presenting an analysis of social movements in general as well as their reasons and barriers, this overview is told through the women’s own words and experiences, painting a graphic picture of courage and determination. This gripping narrative also focuses on the political learning and educational processes that emerged from this effort.
