Brothers Ricardo and Enrique Flores Magón led the Partido Liberal Mexicano (PLM), the anarchist movement that fomented the Mexican revolution of 1910 from within the U.S. This article studies Enrique’s relationship with his little-known first wife, Paula Carmona, to uncover his and the movement’s conflicted positions on gender roles; a power struggle for control of the PLM’s news organ, Regeneración; and the movement’s resort to denunciation and revisionist strategies.
