This panel explores different regional approaches to Latin American feminisms. Katherine Marino's historical work on Pan-American feminism traces the role that Latin American and Caribbean feminists had in advancing women's and human rights in the United Nations, as well as how activists navigated between local and global spheres. Maylei Blackwell's work explores indigenous women organizers in Mexico as well as feminist movements and sexual rights activists throughout Latin America. Her forthcoming book narrates how Indigenous women's activism in Mexico and its diaspora weaves in between local, national, continental, and transborder scales.
