Pick up the June/ July issue of Latina magazine and head to page 26.  There you’ll find Hijas Americanas as the Number 3 item in their popular feature:  The Eight Coolest Things Happening Right Now!  Praise includes “You’ll relate to Hijas Americanas as much as you relate to Latinaand a shout out to the book’s “engaging, un- textbook-like” approach.    A special thank you to all the women featured in the book for giving voice to the Latina experience and for doing it in a way that was so honest, accessible and refreshing!   

Also check out the March/April, 2007 issue of Latina Style Magazine for a write-up on Hijas Americanas in their Rave Reviews!  You can also see it  on-line.    It’s so exciting that this chorus of Latina voices is beginning to make its journey around the world.

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
