Description - Feminism on the Border by Sonia Saldivar-Hull
In this contribution to contemporary feminist theory, Sonia Saldivar-Hull argues for a feminism that transcends national borders and ethnic identities. Grounding her work in an analysis of the novels and short stories of three Chicana writers - Gloria Anzaldua, Sandra Cisneros, and Helena Maria Viramontes - Saldivar-Hull examines a range of Chicana feminist writing from several disciplines, which she collects under the term "feminism on the border". By comparing and defining literary and national borders, she presents the voices of these and other Chicana writers in order to show their connection to feminist literature and to women of colour in the United States.
