Eufrosina's Revolution

In 2007, Eufrosina Cruz Mendoza lost a mayoral race in Oaxaca, Mexico. It wasn't because she lacked votes; she had plenty to be elected. But her win was denied because of her sex.

Instead of admitting all-out defeat, Mendoza took the experience and used what she learned to begin working a grassroots activist helping Mexican women gain political visibility and services. Her journey is chronicled in the 2007 documentary Eufrosina's Revolution.

The documentary screens for free at ASU's West campus in Kiva Hall at the University Center Building, 4701 West Thunderbird Road. Prior to the film starting at 7 p.m., a reception with director Luciana Kaplan will be held in in room 201 from 5 to 7 p.m. and feature a talk from the filmmaker.
