My research question is: How did Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz challenge the gender roles of her time, and how did she affect women after her time leading up to the modern day? This research is significant in that gender roles have changed drastically over time. Understanding the perspective of a woman who had an effect on these revolutionary changes will make history easier to analyze. My research will include analyzing Cruz’s works and how society reacted to her radical views. Additionally, I will research women’s continuation of her views and how this continued to change gender roles over time.
