Chicana Activists of Colorado: Powerful Women Paper Dolls and Their Stories

 

Twenty women are featured as paper dolls and their stories told in this new book. The author uses the paper doll book format to briefly tell each powerful Chicana’s story. Instead of fashionable clothes, each doll can use “Tools of Activist Women” such as a typewriter, bolt cutters, microphone, guitar and hard hat. There is even a podium for the use of the 7” dolls!

The publisher, Vanishing Horizons, designed the unusual book as a portfolio with each page stacked inside the cover.

The Chicanas featured utilized their voice, their story, their willingness to share their suffering. They used their determination to speak the truth and say, “¡Ya Basta! Enough!” Another 80 women are acknowledged in “More Women of Heart and Action.”

 

The planned signing event was postponed until late summer but the book can be ordered from Vanishing Horizons at 719-561-0993 for $18. plus tax and SH
