Essays on Latinx and Caribbean identity and on globalization by renowned women writers, including Julia Alvarez, Edwidge Danticat, and Jamaica Kincaid
Whether forced into the Latinx-Caribbean diaspora by global forces or as a consequence of resisting authoritarian governments "at home," the sixteen acclaimed writer-activists in Women Writing Resistance: Essays on Latin America and the Caribbean
are connected by their struggles against injustice.
Originally published by South End Press in 2003, Women Writing Resistance
gathers voices of writers from the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean, Chicanas negotiating the US-Mexico border, Puertorriquenas grappling with their hybrid American political identities, and Indigenous women fighting for sovereignty and cultural rights.
Through poetry and essay, these contributors--from Gloria Anzaldua
, the mother of Chicana queer theory, and Rigoberta Menchu
, the first Indigenous person to win a Nobel Peace Prize for social justice work, to Michelle Cliff
, a searing and poignant chronicler of colonialism and racism--lead a new wave of resistance against neoliberalism, patriarchy, state terrorism, and white supremacy.
