    1. This was great, I enjoyed it. It's stunning that this was (still is?) a banned book in some southwest schools of the United States.Their coverage primarily focuses on a history of women participating in progressive, radical and labor causes with a little bit of the arts and mainstream politics included toward the end. It would have been nice to see coverage of women who worked in other areas as well, such as science, philosophy, more of the arts, etc.Most of the biographies are a paragraph or tw [...]



    2. It was very empowering learning of all the Chicanas that made a differences in our lives. These Chicanas fought for freedom, liberty, and justice for all people of Mexican decent. It was really inspiring to learn history of my people and history I can relate to. I recommend this book to all people that want to learn Chicana history.


    3. I love this book so much. I was really drawn to it because it taught me more about my culture. This book taught me so much, I really enjoyed reading this. It taught me that back then the Native Americans and the slaves weren't treated any different. I read this book to learn more about my background and to learn more about my roots. I read this book a month ago, and little did I know I would be reading over and over again because it is just full of information. And each time I read it, the more [...]


    4.

    5. We have been systematically erased from history- this book is a refusal of that erasure an assertion of power and struggle a treasure to be passed on to the current and future generations


    6. This book was awesome - it serves as a timeline which gives detail information about the Chicana Movement. Good read indeed :)
