Abstract

Women, auto/biography and border are themes in this chapter that analyzes three rare books written by women from the US-Mexico border from 1942 to 1968. The chapter affirms that the exclusion from the autobiographical genre that women have experienced is a sign of a domain that avoids the formulation, publication, and dissemination of different ways of being a woman in Mexico. The study analyzes the writing of Elisa M. del Valle, Celia Treviño Carranza, and Consuelo Peña de Villarreal Elizondo, grounded in a framework that considers the literature on women’s auto/biography, as well as scholarship on the border.
