POWER, Margaret. Transnational connections among right-wing women Brazil, Chile, and the United States. Varia hist. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.52, pp.67-83. ISSN 0104-8775.

This article establishes the transnational importance that the women's movements against João Goulart in Brazil and Salvador Allende in Chile had on conservative women in the United States. To do so, it examines the extensive coverage that media in the United States gave to these women's movements as well as the visits that anti-Goulart women made to the United States following the Brazilian military's 1964 overthrow of his government. It explores multiple instances in which conservative Brazilian and Chilean women shared their political experiences and victories with North American women, who were in turn inspired by them. It challenges the literature on right-wing women in the United States, which has largely ignored the impact that conservative women in Brazil or Chile have had on movements in that country.

Keywords : right-wing women; transnationalism; Brazil; United States.
