Gloria Anzaldua’s work was crucial in advancing, and takes a prominent place, in Chicana feminist theory because she .

This concept is related to hybridity, a mixed race, which will be the primary focus in this essay.

I studying this book in one of my college classes and I fell in love with it. It's so emotional, intense, and angry. It's visceral and real. I think everyone who wants to better themselves and combat the racism in our society and in themselves should read this book and learn about Anzaldua's life. Any marginalized person is going to connect with something in the text, and anyone of privilege is going to gain some new perspective. Since, in someway, we are all marginalized and privileged it means there is so, so much to learn.

The text itself is also incredibly beautiful and evocative. It is not always a joy to read, no, sometimes it's too painful for that. But it is a powerful read, a meaningful read.

I really enjoyed the historical aspect of the work and her command of language(s). Her descriptions of the "between worlds" (borderlands) is outstanding! Her philosophy regarding people, gender, religion, and also, specific to people of color is a breath of fresh air, when considering the punitive and puritan attitudes of so many people today.

This book changed my life. I think Anzaldua should be assigned reading for any Hispanic populated area because it invites one into the realm of academia with a language that speaks to our culture and gives understanding to the borders that comprise our selves. She creates a language that is not limited to the mixed nature of hybridity or "mestiza" of race, but any group that finds themselves at the borders of 2 or more races, classes, sexes, genders...and so on.

I read this for class, this book was an eye opener from someone else's perspective in life as a Mexican who is lesbian

Chicana, firme, y educada. Eye openers for those who want to understand Chicanismo.

Wonderful tool for class. Will use some of the essays and excerpts for my Mexican American Lit class.

I cannot recommend this work enough. It is very rare that you come across a book that will shake the very foundations of the way that you see the world. This book has done that for me. It is at once, life affirming, challenging, and encouraging. Read it and soak it in. I had to put it down several times to just let her ideas wash over me. Buy it, read it, and tell your friends about it.

One of my favorite books and I had to get my homegirl a copy. Gloria is heaven sent
