Hijas de Cuauhtémoc members were among the first to articulate Chicana feminism, creating a praxis that embraced economic justice, community empowerment and third world solidarity as well as named key issues of domestic violence, the sexual double standard, and employment for Chicanas.

Featuring the original members Anna Nieto Gomez and Corinne Sánchez
