Petra Herrera

During the Mexican Revolution, female combatants known as soldaderas engage in combat alongside men, although they often face abuse. One of the best known of the soldiers was Petra Herrera, who disguised herself as a man and went on to be called “Pedro Herrera”. Like Pedro, she established her reputation by demonstrating exemplary leadership (as well as by blowing up bridges) and ended up revealing herself as a woman. She participated in the second battle of Torreón, on May 30, 1914, along with 400 other women, even being acclaimed by some for deserving all the credit for victory in the battle. Unfortunately, Pancho Villa was not willing to give that credit to a woman and did not promote her to "general". In response, Petra abandoned Villa's forces and formed his own female-only brigade.
