Reviews

"A wonderful compilation of works by Latinx writers commemorating the past and aspiring to change the future."
--Library Journal

"Bless these voices, these powerhouses of the Americas, my teachers, my heroes. May this book travel near and far and inspire others to resist. Thank you for restoring courage in an era of fear, purpose in a season of confusion, and, in these times of censorship, an obligation to speak."
--Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street

"Women Writing Resistance has been reborn in a crucial time in herstory, as belonging, identity, and what it means to be American have once again taken center stage. . . . Empowering to read and process."
--Raquel Cepeda, filmmaker and author of Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina

"Timely, compelling, and nuanced, this anthology invites us to discover what resistance has meant to women and to steward that gift through meaningful action in our own lives."
--Ashley Perez, author of Out of Darkness

"A big, bold inspiration now. . . .These women will set your soul on fire."
--Achy Obejas, author of The Tower of Antilles

"A powerful reminder of how much we can learn from listening to each other's stories . . . .stories that compel, that inspire--stories that need to be heard to envision a more inclusive future."
--Nicole Caso, director of the Spanish Studies Program, Bard College
