Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of International Day of the Woman on March 8, 1960, this poster depicts an alliance of Latin American women bound by their struggle for suffrage and other rights. Leading their charge is a young woman who marches triumphantly forward, her torch held high as if to suggest a bright future for her and for Mexico. The work doubles as a celebration of the right to vote, extended to all Mexican women in 1953.
