Latinas in the United States: A Historical Encyclopedia

A comprehensive historical encyclopedia, Latinas in the United States records the contribution of women of Latin American birth or heritage to the economic, political, and cultural development of the United States. Edited by Vicki L. Ruiz and Virginia Sánchez Korrol, it will serve as an essential reference for decades to come.

With more than 340 photographs, the encyclopedia offers a mosaic of historical experiences, detailing how Latinas have shaped their own lives, cultures, and communities through mutual assistance and collective action, while confronting the pressures of colonialism, racism, discrimination, sexism, and poverty.
