From the Managing Editor's Desk

It has been my pleasure to work with the authors of this special issue of the Colonial Latin American Historical Review (CLAHR), dedicated to the theme of women and their participation in the colonial Luso-Hispano American judicial system, both civil and ecclesiastical. The five thought-provoking articles brought together herein provide an important look at how women across Luso-Hispano America actively operated in this system, either as litigants or as defendants. While these works represent diverse geographic areas of the colonial world, all five authors have focused on how gender, race, and social class impacted women's and men's lives as they sought justice or defended themselves, thus providing us with an intimate look at their personal lives as they intersected with public life.
