This critical anthology of writings by Carlos Monsiváis represents a foundational set of texts by an exceptional (yet under-translated) Mexican cultural critic. Fatefully, Faithfully Feminist situates the urgencies of social movements as they developed in real time. Spanning from 1973 to 2008, Monsiváis's essays, which were originally compiled by scholar Marta Lamas, analyze the role of women in a patriarchal culture from pre-Columbian times to the present. This critical edition offers extensive annotation and cultural background to understand the cogent, but particularly Mexican arguments that Monsiváis makes, many of which are extremely relevant in today's political economy in the US and the world. Norma Klahn and Ilana Luna's translation, critical introduction, and commentary consider issues of context, history, and conventions, framing Monsiváis's debates in relation to global feminist history and human rights struggles.
