Women Writing Resistance: Essays on Latin America and the Caribbean gathers the voices of sixteen acclaimed writer-activists for a one-of-a-kind collection. Through poetry and essays, writers from the Anglophone, Hispanic, and Francophone Caribbean, including Puertorrique#65533;as and Cubanas, grapple with their hybrid American political identities. Gloria Anzald#65533;a , the founder of Chicana queer theory; Rigoberta Mench#65533; , the first Indigenous person to win a Nobel Peace Prize; and Michelle Cliff , a searing and poignant chronicler of colonialism and racism, among many others, highlight how women can collaborate across class, race, and nationality to lead a new wave of resistance against neoliberalism, patriarchy, state terrorism, and white supremacy.
