The book documents the experiences of 61 Chicanas from the ’60s to the present who have paved the way in the fight for human rights as educators, attorneys, activists, artists and more. Some of the women featured have passed, while others remain active.   Chicana Feminists want to destroy this misconception of inferiority and achieve cultural integrity and dignity for all Chicana/os. Chicana Feminism emerged in the mid ’s, in the midst of an era categorized by radical organization and mobilization by many minority groups in the U.S. that felt un-represented and discriminated against.

    Publications Publications from the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center Press explore the Chicana/o and Latina/o experience. They showcase the latest research in a range of disciplines, presented in a variety of formats: the pre-eminent journal in the field, award-winning books, policy briefs and research reports, and historical films on DVD. Chicana women faced an internal struggle as they sought to champion their own rights in society, obstructed by exploitation from our dominant culture, and rampant sexism within their own community. It is important to explore these three fronts Chicana women faced (as Latinas, as workers, and as women) through different mediums.

    The Chicana M(other)work Anthology weaves together emerging scholarship and testimonios by and about self-identified Chicana and Women of Color mother-scholars, activists, and allies who center mothering as transformative labor through an intersectional lens. Contributors provide narratives that make feminized labor visible and that prioritize collective action and holistic healing for mother. The Feminist Wire Books: Connecting Feminisms, Race, and Social Justice is a new series from The Feminist Wire (TFW) and the University of Arizona Press that presents a cultural bridge between the digital and printing worlds. These timely, critical books will contribute to feminist scholarship, pedagogy, and praxis in the twenty-first century.
