Fotografías de las Soldaderas: mujeres de humo y fuego

This week I found:

"Rosita Adelita" -- Valadez chose to combine Rosie the Riveter with La Adelita, a fictional character from the Mexican Revolution, because he says both are feminist archetypes that speak to the empowerment of women.

"La Adelita" is the mythic archetype of the Mexican "soldadera", or female soldier who fought during the Mexican Revolution. These beautiful ceramic Adelitas are completely hand-crafted by skilled artisans at the renowned Fammas ceramic studio of Jalisco, Mexico. La Adelita signifies the courage, strength and inspiration of women. These figures make an empowering statement in any setting of your home or office. They also make great gifts for the inspirational women in your life!
