This chapter surveys the way that Sánchez—as the most visible female revolutionary and the one most closely associated with its famous leader—was imagined within the U.S. press. U.S. newspapers initially offered an adulatory, even romanticized, portrait of Sánchez’s relationship with Fidel Castro and her strategic importance for the Cuban revolution. The U.S. press quickly refashioned this image when the tenor of U.S.-Cuban relations shifted in the early 1960s.

Keywords:   Fidel Castro, United States, Female revolutionary, International press, Cuban revolution, U.S.-Cuban relation
