This issue of Chicana/Latina Studies: the Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social examines positionalities and provides readers with yet more intellectual and spiritual tools for resistance. As Chicana/Latina feminists we re-imagine and re-create ourselves as part of our authentic liberation. Self-definitions become an emancipatory praxis that allow us to position ourselves against agents, policies, and acts of oppression.
