¡Adelante Mujeres!

A film by the National Women's History Project

1992 | 30 minutes | Color | DVD | Order No. 99082


Spanning five centuries, this comprehensive film, produced by the National Women's History Project, focuses exclusively on the history of Mexican-American/Chicana women from the Spanish invasion to the present. Hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, art works, and contemporary footage pay tribute to the strength and resilience of women at the center of their families, as activists in their communities, and as contributors to American history. A companion to the ground-breaking Chicana, ¡Adelante Mujeres! is suitable for young adult and college-age audiences, and community and women's groups.


"Truly an inspirational work...a thoughtful, insightful learning tool filled with images that are long-remembered."

Gloria Molina Supervisor, Los Angeles Country

"An excellent choice for any library which needs materials on minority cultures or women's studies."

National Women's History Project

The National Women’s History Project (NWHP) was founded in 1980 in Santa Rosa, California, by Molly Murphy MacGregor, Mary Ruthsdotter, Maria Cuevas, Paula Hammett, and Bette Morgan. The women founded the organization in order to broadcast and recognize women and their historical achievements. The NWHP began by leading a coalition that successfully lobbied Congress to designate March as National Women’s History Month, now celebrated across the land. Today, the NWHP is known nationally as the only clearinghouse providing information and training in multicultural women’s history for educators, community organizations, and parents-for anyone wanting to expand their understanding of women contributions to US history.
