Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz

280 Words2 Pages
The Acceso activity that initially inspired me was the excerpts we read from the testimony of Rigoberta Menchú. I was interested in Menchú’s feminism and also the role of the church in Guatemala. Then I remembered briefly learning about Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz from México last year in my Spanish class. After researching her a little more I became interested in the power dynamic of the church in México and how Sor Juana contradicted it not only as a woman but as a writer.
My topic is different from what we’ve learned about feminism and the catholic church because I want to focus on Juana Inés’ work and it 's importance. Also, I want to research how the Catholic Church suppressed women instead of how it helped them.
My sources are the poems
