Curator Note: Unlike other nationalist groups of their time, the Young Lords consisted of several women who led the party and ensured that it promote feminism. They revolutionized nationalist organizations by concerning themselves with gendered issues like calling for the end of forced sterilization of Puerto Rican women on the island, demanding safe access to abortion care, requesting safe and legal contraception, offering free child care and challenging gender roles and double standards within their community.
