1st ed.
In this provocative collection of essays, award-winning poet, novelist, scholar, andactivist/curandera Ana Castillo becomes a voice for Mexic-Amerindian women silenced forhundreds of years by the dual censorship of being female and brown-skinned. In it Castillo uses the term"Xicanisma" to replace "Chicana feminism," including mestiza women on both sides of the border: theworking poor, wives and mothers whose cultural roots have been ignored as completely as have been theirdesires, dreams, and struggles to be heard. In her exquisitely written, superbly imagistic prose, she aims toinform, raise consciousness, and incite Chicanas--and all caring people--to change mainstream society fromone of exclusion to inclusion.
