In an event that has left scars on the Mexican national memory, the federal government sanctioned a massacre of hundreds of student protestors in Mexico City's Plaza de las Tres Culturas on October 2, 1968. Carey (St. John's U.) examines the events surrounding the massacre through the lens of gender, discussing clashes between male and female activists within the student movement based on perceived notions of gendered roles, government discourse of gender used to denigrate the movement, attempts to mobilize parents and the differential impact it had on male and female student participation, the government's response to the movement as an attempt to reassert patriarchy, the aftermath of the massacre, and women activists' translation of their 1968 experience into a feminist movement that continued to challenge the Mexican government.
