Alumni Experts: Mexican Women in Interwar Chicago with Dr. Jessica Ruiz (CSH ’07)

DePaul alumni have gone on to become experts in everything from selling donuts out of food trucks to winning Emmys. Drawing on the unique expertise of our alumni community, we started Alumni Experts, a new series to share the wealth of knowledge and skills DePaul alumni have to offer.

In this week’s episode, alumna Dr. Jessica Ruiz (CSH ’07) teaches us about life in interwar Chicago for Mexican women: their successes, their struggles and their legacy in a city with the third-largest Mexican population in the country.
