This book is an ambitious and wide-ranging social and cultural history of gender relations among indigenous peoples of New Spain from the Spanish conquest through the first half of the eighteenth century. In this expansive account Lisa Sousa focuses on four native groups in highland Mexico–the Nahua Mixtec Zapotec and Mixe–and traces cross-cultural similarities and differences in the roles and status attributed to women in prehispanic and colonial Mesoamerica. Sousa intricately renders the full complexity of women s life experiences in the household and community from the significance of their names age and social standing to their identities ethnicities family dress work roles sexuality acts of resistance and relationships with men and other women. Drawing on a rich collection of archival textual and pictorial sources she traces the shifts in women s economic political and social standing to evaluate the influence of Spanish ideologies on native attitudes and practices around sex and gender in the first several generations after contact. Though catastrophic depopulation economic pressures and the imposition of Christianity slowly eroded indigenous women s status following the Spanish conquest Sousa argues that gender relations nevertheless remained more complementary than patriarchal with women maintaining a unique position across the first two centuries of colonial rule.
