la matamoros

A factory seamstress in the 1940s, she became a unionist and international activist, fighting for the rights of women, workers and her countrymen. The fearless Marta Matamoros couldn’t be bribed or intimidated, despite being imprisoned numerous times. Her former sisters-in-arms recount her inspiring life with love and admiration.
