Who is Rosario Robles?
Rosario Robles was born in Mexico City on February 15, 1956. She was to become one of the most prominent women in Mexican politics from the leftist forces.
With elementary and high school in Catholic schools, his education took another course when he entered the CCH Naucalpan and then the Faculty of Economics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
The faculty, more than an academic center, was his political, professional and life platform. She became a teacher there and joined the National Union of Workers of the UNAM, of which she came to occupy the women’s leadership, from 1988 to 1993.
From that same faculty, he participated in the Organization of the Revolutionary Left-Line of Masses and in the Movement for Socialism (MAS).
Also at that faculty, she met two professors whom she would later marry: Saúl Escobar and Julio Moguel, with whom she fathered her only daughter, Mariana.
At that time she was nicknamed the “atomic ant” because she was unstoppable, not only in the movements, but in the academy. She did her master’s degree in Rural Development at the Autonomous Metropolitan University, Xochimilco campus, with the thesis, “Voices of the women of Ixmiquilpan” that she was awarded.
In 1988, the MAS –the movement of which Rosario Robles was a core part– supported the candidacy of Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas Solórzano for which, once the campaign began, Heberto Castillo declined.
That’s where the political link arose. And the future began.
