Women as Social Warriors

Transnational forces are interrelated and are posing new issues and challenges for Chicana and Latina feminism. Traditionally, these women’s voices are left out of the debate surrounding economics, stigmas of sexuality, labor, and health justice. Women as Social Warriors brings these voices to the forefront and highlights women already challenging unjust forces in their communities. We seek to democratize access to public discussion so that ideas will be shared, movements built, and change is accessible.

Though still a relatively new project, WSW events and subsequent actions and organizing have already educated over a thousand students about local, regional, and transnational movement building and inspired many of those into the actual ranks of organizers and activists working for social change. Bottom Line: There are abundant Warriors to highlight and to connect with for many years to come!
