Having returned to Santiago to undertake practical medical training, Beatriz’s extra-curricular life became subsumed in her father’s third presidential campaign. Chapter three zooms in on Chile’s 1964 presidential election, examining the way it intersected with Beatriz’s life and how she participated in it. Because it was particularly relevant for Beatriz, the chapter deals primarily with youth mobilization and gendered dimensions of the campaign. It also argues that the way the election was fought, the issues it highlighted, and its outcome engrained Cold War logics more firmly into Chilean politics than ever before, initiating a new phase of ideological conflict, mobilization, and radicalization.
