The Thursday feature on the Hijas Americanas blog is “A M’ija to Meet.”  It features the views of a Latina from anywhere in America.  Would you like to be A M’ija to Meet? 


If so, answer the questions below in an e-mail (send to hijasamericanas@gmail.com) and provide me with a jpeg image of you. I’ll only use your first name and ethnic heritage as an identifying characteristic (no age, city, etc).   When your week comes up, I’ll send you an e-mail to let you know to check it out.  Thanks so much for considering!

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.
