Hello I’m a queer Latina artist who’s single dad is in a shit ton of debt, and right now I can’t afford to go to college. Please donate if you can, but if you can’t sharing would be wonderful!! I could use all the help I can get.
For decades, Latina authors have written empowering stories of women navigating family, culture and societal norms to find their true selves.
Books by Gabby Rivera and Alida Nugent have most recently helped paint a portrait of what it means to be a Latina feminist today. But even before these women put pen to paper, authors like Sandra Cisneros and Laura Esquivel were already paving the way with narratives centered on strong Latina women.
In the spirit of intersectional feminism, we compiled a list of 11 books by Latina authors that every feminist should read.
