Abstract

In the summer of 1937, six years of labor unrest ended as Latina women enlivened a movement of mass protest to demand recognition of Latinos as legitimate citizens of Ybor City, Tampa, and the broader United States. By uniting the ideals of anti-fascism, labor rights, and civil rights, local Latinas fought for equality despite the belief in their "Un-American" activities. 2012 Riordan fellow Sarah McNamara discusses her research on the protest movement for equality.
