Latinas: Hispanic Women in the United States
If history books obscure the important roles played by women of European origin in the United States, how much more invisible are Hispanic women? In correcting this omission, Hedda Garza documents and discusses the major contributions to this country's social and political mosaic for over 150 years by women leaders, organizers, and activists from diverse Hispanic backgrounds, including Chicanas, Puertorriqueias, Cubanas, Dominicanas, and women drawn to the United States from throughout Central and South America. The material Garza brings to the fore helps us understand minority communities in the United States and offers inspiring accounts of women who struggled to improve conditions for Latinas.
