I think Kathleen's review is right on, and I want to add a few thoughts on this lecture that interested me. Favianna Rodriguez's work is not limited to politics, she talks about social issues in a more personal way by telling the stories of her mother and grandmother's struggles as women of color and as immigrants. In some of her work she expresses the joys and struggles in her daily life. She is incredibly multi-dimensional in her work.
I also really appreciated her approach to the femicides in Juarez. She said that the posters that depict women as victims weren't getting to the heart of the problem. Her poster highlights the role NAFTs plays in what's happening, rather than the mutilation and violence, and impoweers women to incite change.
P.S. there was a copy of the poster that says "we are not the enemy" in the Solidarity Lounge, but someone trashed it.
