Review: "The history of Mexican Americans spans more than five centuries and varies from region to region across the United States. Yet most of our history books devote a chapter at best to Chicano history, with even less attention to the story of Chicanas." "500 Years of Chicana Women's History offers a powerful antidote to this omission with a vivid, pictorial account of struggle and survival, resilience and achievement, discrimination and identity. The bilingual text, along with more than 800 photos and other illustrations, ranges from female-centered stories of pre-Columbian Mexico to profiles of contemporary social justice activists, labor leaders, youth organizers, artists, and environmentalists, among others." "Students, teachers, librarians, and community activists will all discover a remarkable combination of scholarship and youthful appeal."--BOOK JACKET.
