Overview

Compañeras is a collection of oral histories, essays, poems, short stories and art work by and about Latina lesbians. In these pieces, some in Spanish, most in English, 47 women born in 10 different countries address issues such as coming out, relationships with families and friends, political organizing and community building.

This groundbreaking collection, originally published in 1987 by the Latina Lesbian History Project, allows women to speak about what it means to be Latina and lesbian in their communities. Throughout, the voices in this book explore the process of self-commitment to a political struggle to end all forms of Oppression.\
