Minority women have almost always been overlooked in women’s rights movements. Work has been done to include minority women in movements, but there is, still, more that needs to be done. The links below focus on Hispanic women and their involvement in women’s rights movements. Language is a barrier for Hispanic women when it comes to reproductive rights within women’s rights movements, but through poetry language is working as a way to connect all races of women to develop rights that include every woman. The last three links are three of Gloria Anzaldua’s poems with an analysis of how they represent the incorporation of all women in women’s rights movements. All women from all backgrounds need to work together to ensure that all women have a voice in creating and bettering rights for women.
