They were equal partners in the movement in every way except how history remembers their contributions. This is true even of the slogan “Si, se puede!” Dolores was a feminist as well as a environmental civil rights activist. She fought for pesticides to be put away for the amount of deaths they were causing and she was a single mom with children sacrificing to fight and lead with a passion for the rights of others.
