Chicana Voices: Intersections of Class, Race, and Gender
University of New Mexico Press, 1986 - Social Science - 223 pages
This landmark collection of essays from the 1984 National Association for Chicana Studies conference entitled "Voces de la Mujer" offers a cross-section of the interdisciplinary scholarship on Chicanas in U.S. society. Chicanas roles in politics, history, bilingualism, the work force, literature, and higher education are examined in depth in the twenty essays.
Introducing the third printing of this influential book in a new foreword by Teresa Crdova, which updates readers on the gains and struggles of Chicanas in the association since these essays were originally published. Crdova puts the conference that gave root to these essays in historical perspective as an important turning point for Chicana academics on the road to establishing their rightful place on university campuses.
