Women in the Chicano Movement: Grassroots Activism in San José
Tuesday April 16, 2013 6 p.m.
Slonim Living Room
Featuring: Nannette Romero Regua ‘97
The Chicano Movement united numerous Chicanas in San José, California, as they challenged racial and class inequality in public education and city institutions. Many Chicanas stood side by side with Chicanos, and, when necessary, women forged an autonomous political space in order to combat patriarchal notions of women’s roles. Despite their exceptional devotion to the Movement, Chicana activists have not been adequately recognized by Chicano Movement historians who focus almost exclusively on men. My research seeks to accurately portray women’s roles and contributions and expand our understanding of regional Chicana grassroots activism in the Movement.
