Description - Chicana Without Apology by Eden E. Torres

In this book, writer and activist Eden Torres lays the groundwork for a groundbreaking new understanding of Chicana feminist thought. By approaching Chicana/o issues from the frames of feminism, social activism and cultural studies, and by considering both lived experience and theory, Torres offers a more comprehensive understanding of current Chicana life. Torres's prose is compelling and, often, highly personal, recollecting her own story as a first-generation Mexican American; the only person in her family to ever go to college, much less earn a Ph.D. and become a professor. The book struggles to merge the two worlds of academic feminism and the barrio , finding that in the fight for social justice, each has something vital to offer the other. For anyone wishing to understand the challenges U.S. society poses for women of any complex cultural heritage, this will be a must-read book.
