Andres Villareal
b. 1881, Mexico; d. 1963, San Antonio, Texas

The correct spelling of this name is ANDREA VILLARREAL.

Andrea Villareal was a teacher, poet, feminist, labor organizer, and revolutionary who, with her sister Teresa, published the feminist newspaper La Mujer Moderna (The Modern Woman, 1910) in support of the liberal-radical activities of the Partido Liberal Mexicano (PLM) in San Antonio and the Mexican Revolution (1910–17). PLM groups, which opposed the Mexican dictatorship of President Porfirio Díaz (1876–1911), were active in Mexico and the southwestern United States in the early 1900s. Villareal publicly opposed the imprisonment of Mexican men during the Revolution and was often referred to in the press as the Mexican Joan of Arc.
