During the nineteenth century, at a time when women were seen as weak, dependent and submissive, the Mambisas emerged as women warriors who fought in Cuba's War of Independence. The last 50 years, however, have been the most difficult. Under the Castro regime, many have become political prisoners and separated from their families for indefinite periods of time. Their heroism and sacrifice has continues into today, not with weapons, but through activism. Mambisas recounts the history of these women throughout the 150 year struggle for the Cuba's freedom.
