Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz - Mexico - 1664: Sister Juana was a self-taught scholar, poet, and nun in New Spain. Although she lived in a colonial era when Mexico was part of the Spanish Empire, she is considered today a Mexican writer, and stands at the beginning of the history of Mexican literature in the Spanish language. She also learned the Aztec language of Nahuatl, and wrote some short poems in that language. #womens #history #medieval era #religious #latina #women #authors
