The article features Las Flores del Valle, a musical duo made up of New Mexico residents Leila Flores-Dueñas and Carol Vigil. It discusses their mission of highlighting the stories of women of the Mexican Revolution who acted as combatants, camp followers and spies. Their performance of their songs of social justice in schools, theaters and social assemblies is described. Songs in the album "Soldadera!" are cited as a revival of the women's "duetos" style of the mid-20th century.
