Message from the National V.P. for Women
Saludos a nuestros socios y amigos de LULAC presentes en la Conferencia Nacional de Mujeres 2015:
G
racias por su apoyo y la confianza depositada en la Comisión Nacional de Mujeres para hacer posible nuestra
Conferencia Anual 2015, en el Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa de
Nuevo México. Estamos orgullosos de promover nuestra Comisión a través de
los eventos, incursiones, actividades y presentaciones que hicieron posible el
logro de las proyecciones de este ciclo.
La Conferencia de Mujeres de LULAC es diversa debido a sus matices
culturales en talleres, historia y presentación de las luchas por los derechos
civiles. Proseguimos nuestras metas en la búsqueda de la igualdad para los
latinos y latinas en la nación de los Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico. En esta
ocasión, la Comisión está enfocada en la búsqueda de herramientas que
puedan resolver el grave problema de la violencia doméstica y el maltrato a
menores.
Estamos orgullosas de promover esta conferencia en un estado rodeado de
maravillosas montañas, hermosas ciudades, de puntos de interés folclórico
y con orígenes dignos de respeto y admiración tal como el POW-WOW
reconocido por las Naciones Unidas, la Fiesta Internacional de los Globos Aerostáticos, el Festival del Mariachi, el
Festival del Flamenco, Museos Locales y atracciones turísticas. Santa Ana Pueblo, lugar que visitaremos durante
nuestra conferencia, es uno de los veintidós pueblos Nativo-Americanos a lo largo del estado de Nuevo México y aquí
sembraremos las semillas que contribuirán al crecimiento relevante y asertivo de la visión y misión de LULAC, a través
de nuestros pueblos.
Durante el 2015, en la organización ha permeado un estado de dificultades, retos y búsqueda de alternativas para lograr
soluciones positivas para LULAC. La entidad estará siempre por encima de los individuos y las aspiraciones personales
deberán hacerse a un lado para lograr la continuidad del trabajo y la grandeza de nuestra lucha.
En Utah se celebrará la Convención Nacional y será la puerta para lograr la estabilidad que todos anhelamos en LULAC.
El Gran arquitecto del universo será nuestro guía para el éxito de esta Conferencia, el logro de la reforma migratoria,
combatir la violencia doméstica y el maltrato a menores, y lograr la equidad en los derechos de la Mujer Latina.
Cordialmente,
Elsie Valdés Ramos

Message from the President
League of United Latin American Citizens
Dear LULAC Brothers and Sisters,
Welcome to the 2015 LULAC National Women’s Conference in Santa Ana
Pueblo, New Mexico.
The LULAC National Women’s Conference brings awareness to the issues
that most impact the lives of Latino women in the United States. We hope
that with education and awareness we can empower women to break through
the barriers that prevent us from maximizing opportunities in both our
professional and personal lives.
We are proud that this year’s women’s conference will include workshops
and panel discussions focused on domestic violence and how to protect our
children against child abuse. In addition, the LULAC National Women’s
Photo by Luis Nuño Briones
Conference features professional experts to lead informational workshops
on education, health, the elderly, women empowerment, and other issues that particularly impact women. The
conference will also provide professional development workshops and seminars targeted to the needs of Latinas.
The mission of the Women’s Conference continues to be focused on bringing resources and information that raise
the national consciousness of women everywhere. Now, more than ever, as we see our changing demographic
shift the political landscape, we must ensure we have the necessary tools and resources necessary to shatter glass
ceilings everywhere.
Sincerely,
LULAC National President
Margaret Moran

2015 LULAC National Women’s Conference
Welcome from the LULAC Leader in the Southwest q
A
s the LULAC National Vice
President for the Southwest and
the Men’s representative on the LULAC
Women’s commission, it is a privilege
and an honor for me to welcome you
to Beautiful Santa Ana, New Mexico
for the 2015 LULAC National Women’s
Conference.
We are gathered to celebrate how as
women together, we are truly “Leadership,
Opportunity, Education & Family: Celebrating the Latina Spirit”.
On behalf of the LULAC Women’s National Commission, our
gratitude goes out to everyone who has worked so hard in
bringing this conference together, without your time, talent and
commitment this conference could not have taken place.
As history has demonstrated, LULAC has for many years
been empowering women in building a unique foundation of
upper mobility for women, through teamwork, hard work and
determination. Those efforts have helped us make great strides
in all areas of importance to our communities across the nation
and Puerto Rico. We have strategically designed our workshops
to reflect the struggles we are facing as Latina women today, and
have brought you presenters that have a wealth of experience
that will not only be treasured by our conference participants
but increase our knowledge and ability to easily apply and
improve our own day-to-day lives thus bringing us success and
confidence.
I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to thank all
of the speakers, workshop presenters, exhibitors and health fair
providers, whom we know have been working very hard to share
their experience in their own fields of expertise. We are grateful
to our National Vice President for Women, Elsie Valdes for her
guidance during the planning of this and the past conferences. To
our Southwest women commissioners Agnes Rivera-Garza and
Guadalupe Ramirez for assisting in bringing this conference to
New Mexico. A special thanks to our New Mexico State Director
Jessica Martinez, for embracing this challenge and keeping us
focused on the Mission of LULAC.
Lastly, but equally important, to our sponsors. We truly could
have not done this without your generous contributions. From
the bottom of our hearts, Thank You! I hope that everyone from
New Mexico and those from other states will find this year’s
conference one that they will never forget. Enjoy your time in
Santa Ana.
NM STATE DIRECTOR’S WELCOME LETTER
March 26, 2015
Dear Members and Guests:
I
t is with great pleasure to
welcome all of you to the
“Land of Enchantment”, the
great state of Nuevo México.
We are pleased to have been
bestowed the honor to host
the 2015 National LULAC
Women’s Conference.
Throughout history New
Mexico has always taken the leadership and firm position
in the promotion of diversity and inclusion, since
the days of our beloved U.S. Senator Dennis Chavez.
Representing our state, he championed the cause of equal
opportunity and parity in both the public and private
sectors in the mid 1940s, which became the precursor of
our Equal Employment Opportunity Commission laws
and policies adopted by the federal government. NM
Latinas since the 1920s have fought for women’s suffrage
and the right to vote.
This National LULAC Women’s Conference will
provide an excellent pallet of workshops and panel
discussions that address the upward mobility of women,
particularly for Latinas throughout the U.S.
We hope you will enjoy the majestic beauty of our state
and the wonderful amenities of the fine Hyatt Tamaya
Resort and the hospitality of the Santa Ana (Tamaya)
Pueblo.
Sincerely,
Jessica Inéz Martínez
NM LULAC State Director

Apretemos Bien la Falda: Designing a New Era
History: The Pattern
T
he presence of women in history
begins anonymously, when our rights
were not still granted. Several events1, of
brave women form the foundations upon
which we continue to build equality:
• On 1948 the first women’s rights
convention was held in Seneca Falls,
New York. Declaration of Sentiments
was signed, outlining grievances and
setting the agenda for the women’s
rights movement. A set of 12
resolutions, calling for equal treatment
of women and men under the law and
voting rights for women, was adopted.
• On 1903 the National Women’s Trade
Union League (WTUL) was established
to advocate for improved wages and
working conditions for women.
• On 1920 the Women’s Bureau of the
Department of Labor was formed to
collect information about women in
the workforce and safeguard good
working conditions for women. Also
in that year the 19th Amendment to the
Constitution, granting women the right
to vote, became law.
• On 1961 President John Kennedy
established the President’s Commission
on the Status of Women and appointed
Eleanor Roosevelt as chairwoman.
The report issued by the Commission
in 1963 documents substantial
discrimination against women in
the workplace and maked specific
recommendations for improvement,
including fair hiring practices, paid
maternity leave, and affordable child
care. Also in that same year, Congress
passed the Equal Pay Act, making it
illegal for employers to pay a woman
less than what a man would receive for
the same job.
• On 1967 Executive Order 11375
expanded President Lyndon Johnson’s
affirmative action policy of 1965
to cover discrimination based on
gender. As a result, federal agencies
and contractors were required to
take active measures to ensure that
women as well as minorities enjoy the
same educational and employment
opportunities as white males.
• On 1972 Title IX of the Education
8
Amendments banned sex discrimination
in schools. It stated: “No person in the
United States shall, on the basis of sex,
be excluded from participation in, be
denied the benefits of, or be subjected
to discrimination under any educational
program or activity receiving federal
financial assistance.” As a result of Title
IX, the enrollment of women in athletics
programs and professional schools
increased dramatically.
• On 1974 the Equal Credit Opportunity
Act prohibited discrimination in consumer
credit practices on the basis of sex, race,
marital status, religion, national origin,
age, or receipt of public assistance.
• On 1978 the Pregnancy Discrimination
Act banned employment discrimination
against pregnant women. Under the Act, a
woman cannot be fired or denied a job or
a promotion because she is or may become
pregnant, nor can she be forced to take a
pregnancy leave if she is willing and able
to work.
• On 1984 EMILY’s List (Early Money Is
Like Yeast) was established as a financial
network for pro-choice Democratic
women running for national political
office. The organization maked a
significant impact on the increasing
numbers of women elected to Congress.
• On 2009 President Obama signed the Lily
Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, which
allowed victims of pay discrimination
to file a complaint with the government
against their employer within 180 days of
their last paycheck.
• In Jan. 2013, Defense Secretary Leon
Panetta announced that the ban on
women serving in combat roles would
be lifted. The change would be gradual;
some positions would be available to
women immediately but each branch of
the military hads until 2016 to request
exceptions to the new rule.
Outstanding Women:
The Fabric
Many women in history became
iconic to our rights movement: Mothers,
Wives, Workers, Writers, Activists and
All of the Above. Their contributions
www.LULAC.org/womensconference/
is not only valuable for the actions
and accomplishments, but because of
what they represent to other women:
inspiration, courage and hope.
Mother Teresa Of Calcutta2: Inspiration
“We think sometimes that poverty is
only being hungry, naked and homeless.
The poverty of being unwanted, unloved
and uncared for is the greatest poverty.
We must start in our own homes to
remedy this kind of poverty.”
Catholic nun and missionary Mother
Teresa was born circa August 26, 1910
(her date of birth is disputed), in Skopje,
the current capital of the Republic of
Macedonia. On August 27, 1910, a date
frequently cited as her birthday, she was
baptized as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. She
joined an Irish order of nuns serving in
Calcutta, India, and received medical
training in Ireland and India. She founded
the Missionaries of Charity and focused
on serving the dying, with many other
projects as well. She was able to garner
considerable publicity for her work which
also translated into successfully financing
the expansion of the order’s services.
Although she was against abortion, her

claim to women was to give her the child
in order to place it among someone
who could take care of him/her. Mother
Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace
Prize in 1979. She died in 1997 after long
illnesses, and was beatified by
Pope John Paul II on October
19, 2003.
Dolores Huerta3: Courage
“Don’t be a marshmallow.
Walk the street with
us into history. Get
off the sidewalk. Stop
being vegetables. Work
for Justice. Viva the
boycott!”
Dolores Clara
Fernandez was born
on April 10, 1930 in
Dawson, a small mining
town in the mountains
of northern New
Mexico. Her father
Juan Fernández, a farm worker and miner
by trade, was a union activist who ran for
political office and won a seat in the New
Mexico legislature in 1938. Dolores spent
most of her childhood and early adult life in
Stockton, California where she and her
two brothers
moved with
their mother,
following
her parents’
divorce.
According
to Dolores,
her mother’s
independence
and
entrepreneurial
spirit was one
of the primary
reasons she
became a
feminist.
Dolores
found her calling as an organizer while
serving in the leadership of the Stockton
Community Service Organization
(CSO). During this time she founded the
Agricultural Workers Association, set up
voter registration drives and pressed local
governments for barrio improvements. It
was in 1955 through CSO founder Fred
Ross, Sr. that she would meet a likeminded
colleague, CSO Executive Director César
E. Chávez. The two soon discovered
that they shared a common vision of
organizing farm workers, an idea that was
not in line with the CSO’s mission.
As a result, in the spring of 1962 César
and Dolores resigned from the CSO, and
launched the National Farm Workers
Association. Dolores’ organizing skills
were essential to the growth of this
budding organization. The challenges she
faced as a woman did not go unnoted
and in one of her letters to Cesar she
joked…”Being a now (ahem) experienced

We empower
women.
At Walmart, we believe
that empowering women
makes us stronger.
A strong workforce
inspires change.
Join us in our goal to help
people live better.

lobbyist, I am able to speak on a man-to-man
basis with other lobbyists.”
Early on, Dolores advocated for the entire
family’s participation in the movement.
After all it was men, women and children
together out in the fields picking, thinning
and hoeing. Thus the practice of nonviolence was not only a philosophy but a
very necessary approach in providing for the
safety of all.
At age 58 Dolores suffered a lifethreatening assault while protesting against
the policies of then presidential candidate
George Bush in San Francisco. A batonwielding officer broke four ribs and shattered
her spleen. Public outrage resulted in the San
Francisco Police Department changing its
policies regarding crowd control and police
discipline and Dolores was awarded an out
of court settlement. Following a lengthy
recovery she took a leave of absence from
the union to focus on women’s rights. She
traversed the country for two years on behalf
of the Feminist Majority’s Feminization of
Power: 50/50 by the year 2000 Campaign
encouraging Latina’s to run for office.
Julia de Burgos4: Hope
“Tú eres sólo la grave señora señorona; yo
no, yo soy la vida, la fuerza, la mujer.…
Cuando las multitudes corran alborotadas
dejando atrás cenizas de injusticias
quemadas, y cuando con la tea de las siete
virtudes, tras los siete pecados, corran
las multitudes, contra ti, y contra todo lo
injusto y lo inhumano, yo iré en medio de
ellas con la tea en la mano.”
Poet Julia Constanza Burgos García was
born on 1914, in Carolina, Puerto Rico, and
grew up in the barrio of Santa Cruz. She
earned a teaching certificate at the University
of Puerto Rico, and worked as a teacher at
the Barrio Cedro Arriba in Naranjito before
moving to New York, where she worked
10
as a journalist, and then Cuba, where she
completed graduate studies at the University
of Havana. Returning to New York after
two years in Cuba, de Burgos served as the
art and culture editor for the progressive
newspaper Pueblos Hispanos.
Predating the Nuyorican poetry
movement, de Burgos’ poems engage themes
of feminism and social justice. In a 2011
profile of de Brugos for Ms. Magazine’s blog,
Vanessa Perez Rosario states, “De Burgos
was an ambitious and brilliant woman
who worked diligently on two fronts—to
establish herself as a writer of international
acclaim and to eradicate injustice. Her
feminist politics and her Afro-Caribbean
ideas allow us to read her as a precursor to
contemporary U.S. Latina/o writers.”
Exiquia Ramos Barreto de Valdés: All of the
Above
“!Julián!”
Born in
1914, in
Vega Baja,
Puerto Rico,
Exiquia
Ramos
Barreto
was a rural
woman, in
a family
of eleven
brothers
and
sisters.
On
1948, she married Julio Valdés
Cortés, the love of her life, until her death
on the July 4th, 1999. Exiquia or Jiche, as
everyone calls her, was a woman with a lot
of character for a woman of her era. She
likes to ride horses and take bath in the river
with her long sleeve and ankle skirt bath suit
from 1920. She was a tremendous cook and
whose kitchen was open for anyone in need,
daily. She was also, an active member of the
Catholic Church which includes the cleaning
of the Church weekly and supper for the
priest monthly. Jiche was a political helper
during elections process, a respectful wife
and a beloved mother of her only daughter.
Jiche was a role model, someone who
knew how to: live with respect to others
and her family, deal with life challenges,
contribute to society and love everyone. As
a role model she inspires me to go further,
www.LULAC.org/womensconference/
teaches me courage in front of adversity and
gave me hope for the future. Jiche was my
mother and the most wonderful woman I
have ever known.
Our Challenges:
The Sewing
Although a great deal of rights and
freedom has been accomplished, there
is yet too much to be done. Latinas
face many issues regarding, education,
health, government/political issues,
domestic violence, child abuse and family.
Government, community/non-profit and
political organizations gathered statistics
and address issues in order to create policy,
awareness and develop solutions for this
issues.
We know Latinos comprise the fastest
growing racial/ethnic group in the United
States. There are 30.1 million Hispanic
adults in the United States and
14.4 million of them—or 48%—are
women, according U.S. Census Bureau
estimates5. In a data driven word6, here
is a blueprint of our state of being:
• Approximately half (48%) of all
Hispanic women were born in the U.S.
or born abroad to a parent who is a U.S.
citizen; the other half (52%) were born in
countries other than the U.S.
• Among immigrant Hispanic women,
57% have arrived since 1990. Six-in-ten
Hispanic women immigrants were born
in Mexico.
• Hispanic women are much younger than
non-Hispanic women; their median age
is 41, compared with a median age of 47
for non-Hispanic women. Native-born
Hispanic women are even younger. Their
median age is 39, compared with 42 for
immigrant Hispanic women.
• The majority (55%) of all Hispanic women
report that they speak only English in
their home or that they speak English
very well. Most of these English speakers
are native born. Seven-in-ten (73%)
immigrant Hispanic women report that
they do not speak English in their home or
that they do not speak English very well.
• Hispanic and non-Hispanic women
are equally likely (54%) to be married.
Hispanic women immigrants (63%) are
more likely to be married than are nativeborn Hispanic women (44%), partially

proud to support the
2015 LULAC Women’s
Conference.
Apretemos Bien la Falda: Designing a New Era
due to the fact that native-born Hispanic
women are younger than immigrant
Hispanic women.
• Hispanic women have a higher fertility
rate than non-Hispanic women: 84 births
per 1,000 women in the year preceding
the date of the survey, compared with 63
births per 1,000 Non-Hispanic women.
Much of this difference is due to the
higher fertility rate of immigrant women
(96 births per 1,000 women) compared
with native-born Hispanic women (73
births per 1,000 women).
• Hispanic women who gave birth were
more likely to be unmarried (42%) than
were non-Hispanic women (34%) who
gave birth. The share of out-of-wedlock
births to Hispanic women immigrants
(35%) was nearly equal to that of nonHispanic women and was much lower
than the share for native-born Hispanic
women (50%).
• Hispanic women are less educated than
non-Hispanic women. Some 36% have less
than a high school education, compared
with 10% of non-Hispanic women.
Nearly half (49%) of all Hispanic women
immigrants have less than a high school
education; a similar share (46%) of nativeborn Hispanic women have at least some
college education.
• The labor force participation rate of
Hispanic women (59%) is similar to
the participation rate for non-Hispanic
women (61%). Native-born Hispanic
women (64%) have a higher participation
rate.
• Hispanic women who work full time earn
less than non-Hispanic women who work
full time: a median of $460 per week,
compared with $615 per week for nonHispanic women. Native-born Hispanic
women earn a median of $540 per week,
while immigrant women earn $400.
• Hispanic women are twice as likely as
non-Hispanic women to live in poverty;
20% of Hispanic women are poor
compared with 11% of non-Hispanic
women.
• The most common occupations
of Hispanic women are office and
administrative support positions; 21%
Hispanic women work in those types of
occupations. This share is similar to that of
non-Hispanic women, 22% of whom work
in those occupations.
• Hispanic women are more likely than
non-Hispanic women to be employed in
blue-collar occupations such as building,
12
grounds cleaning and maintenance (10%
versus 2%); food preparation and serving
related jobs (9% versus 6%); production
(8% versus 4%); and personal care and
service occupations (7% versus 5%).
• Like so many people living in the
United States, Latinos are challenged
by high rates of heart disease, diabetes,
and overweight and obesity. Women
are disproportionately more likely than
men to be affected by certain critical
health problems, including mobility
impairments, chronic health conditions
such as asthma, arthritis, or depression.
Women are less likely to be physically
active and are more likely to be obese.
Females age 12 and older are more
likely than males to report experiencing
depression7.
• Latinos face many barriers to good
health. Nearly one-third of Latinos do not
have health insurance. People who are
uninsured are less likely to have a regular
doctor or get preventive care, which
results in poorer health overall8.
• Women’s gains in educational attainment
have significantly outpaced those of men
over the last 40 years. Today, younger
women are more likely to graduate from
college than are men and are more likely
to hold a graduate school degree. Higher
percentages of women than men have
at least a high school education, and
higher percentages of women than men
participate in adult education. Despite
these gains in graduation rates, differences
remain in the relative performance of
female and male students at younger ages,
with girls scoring higher than boys on
reading assessments and lower on math
assessments. These differences can be seen
in the fields that women pursue in college;
female students are less well represented
than men in science and technologyrelated fields, which typically lead to
higher paying occupations9. Because
women earn less and because two-earner
households have higher earnings, families
headed by women have far less income
than do married-couple families.
• Females made up 70% of victims killed by
an intimate partner in 2007, a proportion
that has changed very little since 1993.
Intimate partners were responsible for 3%
of all violence against males and 23% of all
violence against females in 200810.
• While the number of studies examining
intimate partner violence (IPV) in Latino
populations is growing, research on this
www.LULAC.org/womensconference/
issue continues to be limited. According
to National Statistics11 approximately 1
in 3 (29.7% to 37.1%) of Hispanic/Latino
women have experienced physical violence
by an intimate partner in their life time
and 1 in 12 (8.1 %) of Hispanic/Latina
women experienced this violence in the
previous 12 months12, 13. This rate is
approximately the same as for women from
other racial/ethnic groups. In fact, a recent
study found no significant difference
across racial groups once socioeconomic
status was taken into consideration.
• Latinas reported seeking access to shelters
less than women from other ethnic/
racial groups; this is especially true for
immigrant Latina survivors. Of the Latinas
who experience abuse, about half of them
never report the abuse to authorities12.
Nearly half of Latinas in one study did not
report abuse to authorities, possibly due
to a variety of reasons; including fear and
lack of confidence in the police, shame,
guilt, loyalty and/or fear of partners, fear of
deportation, and previous experience with
childhood victimization.

2015 LULAC National Women’s Conference
Agenda
March 26-29, Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico www.LULAC.org/womensconference/17
The Women of LULAC
LULAC was one of the first national organizations to place emphasis on the role of women. Its first council #9 was created on
February 22, 1934, in El Paso, Texas. By 1938, the League had created the first women's national office in Mrs. Ester Machuca as
Ladies Organizer General.
The growth of the role of women in LULAC has never stopped. In 1981, the League's first National Vice-President for Women
was elected. Programs for women are carried out at the local level through the efforts of state coordinators for women. One of
the League's most successful programs has been two-day conferences on education and employment held in various states, and a
national conference.
Mujeres de LULAC: A History of Accomplishments
1929: LULAC was established in Texas.
Membership was open to persons of Mexican
origin but women were note encouraged to join.
1932: Women formed LULAC Ladies'
Auxiliaries in Alice, El Paso, Kingsville, and
San Antonio, Texas.
1933: Ladies LULAC was founded at the Texas
State LULAC Convention in Del Rio, when the
League permitted Latin American women to
organize on the same bas is as men. Joe Alamia
and J. M. Canales, of Edinburg, submitted the
resolution establishing Ladies LULAC. Jose
Luz Saenz served as the first organizer of Ladies
LULAC, the only man ever in this position.
Alice, Texas, organized the first council by
incorporating the existing ladies' auxiliary
there. Ladies LULAC councils largely worked
independently of one another and apart from
men's councils. They were especially concerned
with children, the poor, the elderly, women,
scholarships, education and politics.
1934: Ester Machuca founded Ladies LULAC
Council#9, in El Paso, Texas, by incorporating
the existing ladies' auxiliary there, and served
as first treasurer. Council #9 is the only Ladies
Council founded in the 1930s that still exists
today. Council #9 is currently lead by Lila
Gutierrez. LULAC established the position
Ladies Organizer General, the official organizer
of women's councils. This position existed until
1942. In Goliad, Ladies LULAC fought for
admission of students of Mexican descent into
public schools.
1935: Maria Torres Reyna founded Ladies
Council #22 in Houston and served as first
Secretary. Council 322 collected poll taxes,
registered voters, and bought eyeglasses for
school children.
1937: Alice Dickerson Montemayor was elected
Second National Vice President, the first woman
to hold a national elected position. Ladies
LULAC established Junior LULAC. The first
charter was written by Alice Montemayor, who
served as Director General from 1939-1940.
1938: With Filemon Martinez as National
LULAC President, Ladies LULAC was
recognized as a national entity and the position
of Ladies Organizer General (later called
National Vice President of Women) was created
on the national board. Ester Machuca was
named Ladies Organizer General and Ladies
LULAC Councils were established in Arizona,
California, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas.
Eva Carrillo founded Ladies LULAC in Austin.
She and her council worked to desegregate
movie theaters and swimming pools as well as
schools. They also encouraged Hispanics to buy
18
property, pay the poll tax, vote, and defend their
rights.
1939: The May edition of LULAC NEWS, the
official magazine of the League, was conceived,
edited, and produced by Ester Machuca and
dedicated to Antonietta Delgado de Martinez,
Ladies LULAC member and deceased wife of
LULAC National President Filemon Martinez.
It is the only edition ever produced entirely my
LULAC women and is one of only two issues
about LULAC women. At 68 pages, it was also
one of the thickest.
1940: Alice Dickerson Montemayor became
associate editor of LULAC News. She wrote
more articles for LULAC News than any other
woman, including a 1937 article entitled "
Women's Opportunity in LULAC" in which she
defined a woman's place to be in that position
where she can do the most for the furthering of
her fellow woman and in 1938 editorial entitled
"Son Muy Hombres?" in which she denounced
notions of male superiority and argued for
women's right to participate in LULAC.
1948: Ladies LULAC contributed funds for
Delgado v Bastrop ISD lawsuit, which ended
segregation of Hispanic American children in
Texas schools.
1950: LULAC Councils began to integrate. In
Houston, Ladies LULAC collected poll taxes,
registered voters, and bought eyeglasses for
school children.
1961: Consuelo Herrera Mendez, President of
Ladies LULAC Council #202 in Austin, and
her council worked on political campaigns,
getting voters to the polls, and fund-raising for
scholarships.
1963: Lucy Acosta was the first woman elected
National Director for youth activities. She
served as Second National Vice President in
1965.
1964: Belen Robles was appointed National
Secretary. She served until 1970.
1970: Integrated LULAC Councils were
typical and the majority of women joined them
although Ladies LULAC councils continued to
exist. Belen Robles became the first woman to
run for the office of LULAC National Office.
1974: LULAC endorsed the Equal Rights
Amendment. Belen Robles was elected the first
woman to serve as National Vice President for
the Southwest.
1976: Dolores Adame Guerrero was elected
the first woman Texas LULAC State Director.

social service program for the elderly and adults
with disabilities, originally funded by the Texas

Department of Human Services and Community
Development funds from the City of El Paso to

as to provide escort and transportation services
primarily to and from medical appointments.

project until her death in 2008.
