Chicana, La by Alfredo Mirande
Book Description"La Chicana" is the story of a marginal group in society, neither fully Mexican or fully American, who suffer under triple oppression: as women, as members of a colonized culture, and as victims of a cultural heritage dominated by the cult of "machismo." Tracing the role of Chicanas from pre-Columbian society to the present, the authors reveal the antecedents and roots of contemporary cultural expectations in Aztec, colonial, and revolutionary Mexican historical periods. A discussion of the contribution of modern Chicanas to their community and to feminism and a look at literary stereotypes and the emergence of Chicana literature to counter them round out this perceptive and sympathetic analysis.

"Although patriarchy, machismo, and excessive masculine displays are assumed to be prevalent among Latinos in general, and Mexicans in particular, little is known about Latino men or macho masculinity."
