Dangerous Women

Gender, Ethnicity, and “Domestic” Disputes in New Granada

(p.176) Chapter Six Dangerous Women
Fatal Love

Victor M. Uribe-Uran

Stanford University Press

Examines 54 cases of spousal murder that took place in late colonial Colombia. Similar to the discussion on Mexico, this chapter addresses the circumstances and motives of the crimes. Rather than concentrating on the ethic aspects of the various crimes, however, it highlights the gender dimensions. This is important in light of the fact that a considerable portion of the murders were committed by women, a peculiar situation the chapter seeks to understand.
