Ana Castillo: Xicanisma and Writing

July 1, 2008

Ana Castillo has been interested in the role of women in Hispanic society and the lack of recognition of women in Chicano and American culture throughout her life and her work. She described in the 1998 “Platica” how “being a Chicana or a mestiza was a total non-event in American society. It’s as if we didn’t exist.” ~ from speakingofstories.org
