Polémicas, feministas, puertorriqueñas y desconocidas: Clotilde Betances Jaeger, María Mas Pozo y sus “charlas femeninas” en el Gráfico de Nueva York, 1929–1930
In addition to recording immigration experiences, many writings of the interwar period published in New York by men and women of Hispanic origin emphasized the importance of the economic autonomy and independence of Hispanic women in the city and in Latin America. Within this context, particularly between 1929 and 1930, Puerto Rican authors Clotilde Betances Jaeger and María Mas Pozo used the pages of Gráfico to address the Hispanic woman of New York City. Their discourse exposed social conventions and the arbitrary nature of the institutions and practices upon which the sex/gender system is based, with its restricted, idealized representations of femininity.
