In this session we will explore the context and the writings by four nuns of Mexico, Peru, Chile and Spain of the 17th century. We will deepen into how they struggled to become writers in a very regulated environment and also get to understand their feelings, thoughts and the message they tried to communicate despite the male control that reigned in that moment of history.
