La Confederación de Campesinos del Perú (CCP) is the first and oldest peasant organization in the country. Since 1947, this organization has been crucial for the representation and the defense of peasants’ interests. Even though various scholars have investigated the CCP’s leading roles in the struggles for land, there are no studies about women in this organization. Through the analysis of archives and interviews, this article examines the trajectory of female peasant leaders within the CCP and outlines how their roles, agendas, and demands have contributed to changing and advancing this organization and politics itself.
