Editorial Reviews


“This remarkable collection of essays registers the efforts of Chicanas, against all odds, to document, imagine, and understand the complexity of their histories and experiences. Particularly impressive are the open-ended discussions between academics, artists, and writers. The essays brilliantly support the editors’ claim that the Chicanas have invented new forms and have intervened decisively in the debates on gender and ethnicity. Chicana Feminisms will be an essential reference for many years to come.”—Jean Franco, author of Critical Passions: Selected Essays

"Chicana Feminisms comes alive with theoretical and emotional responses from some of the most exciting thinkers in Chicana feminist social thought. This book is a truly momentous achievement. It will stand the test of time." —Laura I. Rendón, author of Educating a New Majority: Transforming America’s Educational System for Diversity

This was a textbook for one of my classes. I honestly didn't like it very much, but other people in my class did.
