One approach to American territory growth within the U.S.-Mexico borderlands used to be the denial of estate rights to Mexican landowners, which ended in dispossession. Many old bills put out of your mind this colonial effect on Indigenous and Mexican peoples, and present reports that do take on this topic are likely to privilege the male adventure. right here, Karen R. Roybal recenters the point of interest of dispossession on ladies, arguing that gender, occasionally greater than race, dictated criminal strategies of estate possession and person autonomy. Drawing on a various resource base—legal land files, own letters, and literature—Roybal locates voices of Mexican American girls within the Southwest to teach how they fought opposed to the erasure in their rights, either as girls and as landowners. Woven all through Roybal's research are those women's testimonios—their tales targeting inheritance, estate rights, and shifts in strength. Roybal positions those testimonios as another archive that illustrates the myriad ways that a number of layers of dispossession—and the alterations of estate possession in Mexican law—affected the formation of Mexicana identity.
