Latin American Women Writers currently includes nearly 50,000 pages of poetry, prose and drama written by women in all of Latin America, mainly in the original Spanish and Portuguese (with a small amount of original French and English writings), and spanning a period from the colonial era to the present day. This collection includes large number of in-copyright materials, as well as previously unpublished works from writers' archives, and ephemera like pamphlets, flyers and performance programs. The collection will be of value to students and scholars of Spanish and Portuguese at all levels. Sample titles include Influencia de las Ideas Modernas by the early twentieth-century anarchist Puerto Rican writer Luisa Capetillo, and A Mulher na Construção do Mundo Futuro, a forward-thinking feminist treatise by the later twentieth-century Brazilian activist Rose Marie Muraro.
