Flag of the Cruz Blanca Neutral Mexicana

Elena Arizmendi Mejía (1884-1949) was studying nursing at Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, when the Mexican Revolution broke out in 1910. The Mexican Red Cross refused to provide first aid to the revolutionary forces, so Arizmendi Mejía dropped out of nursing school in 1911 to found La Cruz Blanca Neutral (Neutral White Cross) in Mexico City in accordance with the Geneva Conventions. One of the new organization’s first actions was to raise funds to build a field hospital at the heart of the combat zone in Ciudad Juárez. Arizmendi Mejía was also a pioneering Central American feminist and founder of Feminismo Internacional, the official journal of the International League of Iberian and Latin American Women. In 1923, she founded Las Mujeres de la Raza, an association that fought for women’s suffrage and civil rights.
