We are thrilled to announce that Intersectional Chicana Feminisms by Aída Hurtado won a bronze medal in the Victor Villaseñor Best Latino Focused Nonfiction Book Award section of the International Latino Book Awards!
Since 1997, Empowering Latino Futures has celebrated literature through its book awards. These awards have grown to become the largest Latino cultural awards in the U.S.
Chicana feminisms are living theory deriving value and purpose by affecting social change. Advocating for and demonstrating the importance of an intersectional, multidisciplinary, activist understanding of Chicanas, Intersectional Chicana Feminisms provides a much-needed overview of the key theories, thinkers, and activists that have contributed to Chicana feminist thought.
Aída Hurtado is Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and author of Voicing Chicana Feminisms: Young Women Speak Out on Sexuality and Identity.
