Who is Comandanta Ramona?

Terry Wolfwood

Marcos walks with Ramona to the helicopter which will fly her to Mexico City from the Zapatista community of La Realidad, Chiapas, Mexico.

Who is Comandanta Ramona? asks Terry Wolfwood, and paints a portrait of a frail, peasant woman-turned-revolutionary, who has now become a role model and beacon of hope to millions of Mexican women, particularly the indigenous people of Chiapas.
