Naomi Brussel brings us a feature on Mujercitos in Mexican culture, the word means little women in Spanish and  refers to men who dress as women. The word mujercitos literally means "little women" but the ending refers to gender non-conforming men who dress as women.

This fascinating presentation was held in Blue stocking in May 2016 and is by Susana Vargus discussing mujercitos in Mexican culture. She holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from Mcgill University and now is a social scientist research post doctoral fellow at the Institute of Aesthetic Research at the Nat. Atonomous Univ. of Mexico.
