(Out)Classed Women: Contemporary Chicana Writers on Inequitable Gendered Power Relations


Critical discussions of the works of Chicana authors are invariably grounded in issues of power and politics. This book examines how contemporary Chicana writers have explored the subjugation of Chicanas. While Chicanos and Chicanas often suffer from the oppression of European Americans, Chicanas are additionally oppressed by a cultural system that subordinates them even further because of their gender. The first part of the volume discusses the major concerns and themes of Chicana writers in terms of the problems caused by inequitable gendered power relations. In the second, the proposed solutions of Chicana writers are presented. The final portion of the volume explores the relationship between Chicanas and other women writers and critics of color, Jewish feminists, and the mainstream feminist movement.
