Descubriendo El país de las mujeres y los resultados de un feminismo original
Summary, in English
El país de las mujeres, the book of Gioconda Belli narrates the story a group of five contemporary female feminists who establish a new political party, hoping to improve the situation of women in their country and achieve a social change. This thesis aims to present that Belli proposes a feminism that combines tradition and progress, showing that it is not necessary for feminism to bare specific etiquettes or follow concrete rules in order to deliver successful results. The analysis of the book demonstrates the way with which the protagonists defy the male chauvinist mentality of their country, they way they integrate femininity in their politics, together with the typical characteristics associated with it, and how they project the plurality of female identities. Moreover, although the basic goals of feminism, throughout its history, are the same, it is shown that it is not necessary that a homogeneous policy is followed, and that the ideas of the movement can be adjust, combined or altered in relation to the situation in which women are in.
