This book examines women's writings in relation to language, power, sexuality, and race in contemporary Cuba, analyzing the creation of alternative matria frameworks that enunciate a feminist/feminine perspective of the nationalist discourse. Cámara-Betancourt discusses four Cuban writers: Ofelia Rodríguez Acosta, Lydia Cabrera, María Elena Cruz Varela, and Zoé Valdés.
