about

Negotiating Feminismsexamines intergenerational feminism in Chicanx family life. It analyses literary representations of the ways that Chicanas negotiate feminisms in the family across generations, through the maintenance, contestation, and adaptation of traditional gender roles. Using an original theoretical lens of negotiation to read the works of Ana Castillo and Sandra Cisneros, this book unpacks intergenerational resistance to patriarchal oppression. This book shows how the works of Cisneros and Castillo articulate a politics of negotiation that critiques the gendered ideologies and roles of the family.
