About the Author

Adela Zamudio (1854-1928) is the most celebrated writer of Bolivia, where her birthday is a national holiday. Self- educated, she was the mother of feminism and women's education in Bolivia. She was an activist for women's right to vote, women's right to divorce, and for indigenous rights. Her Quechua-language literacy projects are credited with contributing to the success of indigenous uprisings.
Lynette Yetter is a Pushcart Prize nominated poet who first encountered a bust of Adela Zamudio in a park bearing her name in La Paz, Bolivia. Curious to learn more, since so few women are honored with monuments, Yetter read everything she could find by and about Adela Zamudio, culminating in a summa cum laude Reed College Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) thesis, and this book. Lynette Yetter is a panpipe-playing Buddhist lesbian artist who shares her time between La Paz, Bolivia and the unceded indigenous territory temporarily called Portland, Oregón. www.LynetteYetter.com
