Academic journal article Women's Studies Quarterly. As Gloria Anzaldua has pointed out, "Activism is the courage to act consciously on our ideas, to exert power in resistance to ideological pressure-to risk leaving home" Anzaldua and Keating5.

A fascinating personality, Sor Juana reemerges after two centuries in the shadow of forgetfulness as an encyclopedic and multidisciplinary intellectual who lived an obscure, if not stifled, life within the shadows of her convent. Her writings are the main source for reconstructing the events of her life, as very few reliable historical documents have survived. Other biographies, such as the one published in by Father Diego Calleja the first one written about Juana become unreliable in that they render Juana's life as an ascent toward saintliness, and are religiously biased, therefore unable to clarify some parts of her life that have remained ambiguous.

Austin: University of Texas Press, Arriving at the University of California, Riverside, the first member of my extended family to go to college, I read everything my professors recommended.

Since the early 21st century, there has been an emergence of scholarship and theorizing of Latina sexualities within the social sciences, humanities, and interdisciplinary programs, such as Chicanx studies, Latinx studies, American studies, and feminist studies. However, cultural production has long been interrogating the way that Latina sexuality has been represented, as well as pathologized and racialized. While there is a plethora of information regarding sexuality of women in Latin America, this article deals with the discursive and material construction of Latina sexuality for US Latinas and Chicanas who were born in the United States or migrated to the United States.
