SamenvattingThe author examines visual images of la chica moderna, exploring how the modern woman was envisioned in Mexican popular culture and how she figured into postrevolutionary contestations over Mexican national identity. .Through her interpretations of visual representations of la chica moderna, she demonstrates how the images embodied popular ideas and anxieties about sexuality, work, motherhood, and feminine beauty, as well as class and ethnicity.
