Abstract

Editors' Note Contesting the Structures of Power and Exclusion Feminist critiques of transformations, movements, and hierarchies in different social contexts have truly enhanced many aspects of humanities and social science research over the past forty years. Gender scholars have offered both nuanced and complex insights into the mechanisms that maintain and police social stratification. We anticipate that the writings featured in this issue will further allow us to ascertain how these mechanisms affect the individual lives of women and gender others. The intersectional, decolonial, and interdisciplinary lenses that our authors use signal exciting new developments in the field of women's, gender, and sexuality studies. Deconstructing the social and scientific technologies of modernity designed to regulate physical and discursive bodies in patriarchal settings is an important intellectual mission for a number of our contributors to this issue. Nicole Sanders in "Gender and Consumption in Porfirian Mexico" explores how new consumer technologies in turn-of-the-century Mexico encouraged middle- and upper-class women to uphold traditional gender roles and racial exclusions. Also interested in how technologies inform body politics, Emily Johnston in "Poisoned Subjects" documents the life narratives of the women who used the fertility drug diethylstilbestrol (des) and developed vaginal and cervical
