This anthology of documents, essays and interviews provides an overview of the development of Chicana feminism, from the first historical writings to contemporary works, including the rise of the Chicana social protest movement. It documents the historical contributions of a generation of Chicana feminists whose activism forged a collective struggle to overcome the gender contradictions, tensions, and conflicts within the Chicano Movement. Any historical analysis of the Chicano Movement, the Women's Movement and any other social protest movement of the 1960s is incomplete without a systematic integration of the Chicana feminist movement and its ideological foundations. Organized thematically and chronologically, these collected works of Chicana feminists explore such topics as sexual politics within the Chicano cultural nationalist movement, the multiple sources of Chicana oppression, organizational strategies and agendas, and the relationship between Chicana feminists and white feminists.

Industry Reviews

"This collection will serve as an invaluable reader for anyone interested in issues of race, ethnicity, women, feminism, communities, radical movements, and sexual and identity politics in recent US history." -"Journal of Women's History ""Chicana Feminist Thought is an exceptional text that not only explores the oppression experienced by the Chicanas from members of the dominant society, but also gives insight into tensions within the traditional community when it is confronted by those women who want to effect change and improve the status of women, as well as of their children and their community as a whole." -"NWSA Journal "This collection brings together the feminist documents that proliferated as women of "el movimiento struggled to overcome sexist oppression in their search for a 'room of their own'." -"Latina
