dc.description.abstractResearch paper about Las Madres de la Plaza de Mayo. Even today, women engaging in the political arena face intense criticism. Las Madres were widely discredited by the Argentine media and government. The archetype of the hysterical woman was employed to discredit their argument and organizing efforts. However, Las Madres by using their status as mothers to their advantage, the women gained international recognition and even won the United Nations Prize for Peace Education. Whether they adopted the feminist label or not, Las Madres worked tirelessly to work for the betterment of their society and accepted some basic feminist principles.en_US
