Antonieta Rivas Mercado

It still feels strange to find photos, websites and blog posts on Antonieta Rivas Mercado. She was my Abuelita's cousin and I grew up hearing stories of her as well as other family members and ancestors. It wasn't until a film on her life was released in 1982 that I realized how well known she was. I remember a few relatives wrote my mother that the film was awful and not to see it.
