Six women. Ten years. One goal. Equality.
Emerging from the Feminist and Chicano movements of the 60s and 70s is the story of six Latinas who, through a series of “Aha!,” moments answered the call to action. Their ideological differences, personal experiences and upbringings brought them to a monumental turning point in their lives—the National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC) and the 1977 International Women’s Year, National Women's Convention. As chosen delegates from the states of Illinois, California and Texas, these women were a part of the NWPC Chicana Caucus—representing Latina sisters across the nation and working towards liberation.
