Overview

Aztec Women and Goddesses explores the various stages of the Mexica woman's life. Miriam López analyzes the mythology, the archaeological discoveries, and the codices and sixteenth-century chronicles with perfect ease as she describes the conduct expected of women and the possibilities for their lives according to Mexica norms and ideals. This insightful work rescues the contributions of Mexica women from oblivion-contributions which, though they may not have been deemed worthy of recognition and prestige in their own day, played an essential part in shaping and consolidating the social structures of the Mexica Empire.
