Violence along the border and United States has caused attention around the world since officials have declared war against drugs.
Our goal is to expose and gain a fresh perspective on the controversial role of women in not only Mexican American Society, but as well as the borderland societies and how the surrounding world constantly reshapes them due to their interactions and attitudes. Valerie will lead the canalization of the role of Mexican American women, from a historical and sociological aspect. Valerie's research will begin with Pre-conquest study of the home and family of Spain and Pre-Columbian Mexico and end in mid 20 century Mexico and United States Borderland areas. Diana will lead the analyze of multimedia coverage on border violence due to Mexico's declaration of "war against drugs." Also, we will see how this violence is currently affecting women along the border. Cynthia, will lead the discussion on the role of Mexican American woman from the perspective of another Mexican American women's point of view. The Data gathered will derive from a series of analytical observations focusing on relations among Mexican American women within their household environment.
