This 2-page file includes one biography each on two politically active Hispanic women: Rigoberta Menchú and Eva Perón. Menchú was the first aboriginal women to win the Nobel Prize and Peron helped to bring the vote to women in Argentina in the 1940s as the first lady.
Each reading includes a reading comprehension section.
Ideal for Hispanic heritage month and women's history month!
Note: The Menchu reading includes information on the Guatemalan Civil War so this resource is better for high school students due to the political/mature nature of the subject matter.
