becauseofthiswoman:

Name: Gloria Anzaldua
Dates:1942-2004

Why she rocks: She is the leading scholar of Chicano cultural theory and queer theory, and has written several books based on her life growing up on the Mexican-Texas border. She is well known for using a blend of languages in her writing to challenge her readers to decipher meanings on their own.

Quote: “Though we tremble before uncertain futures, may we meet illness, death and adversity with strength. May we dance in the face of our fears.”

Because of this woman… we have texts that challenge feminists and LGBT studies students to see issues from a multi-cultural perspective.
