      In the Chicana coming of age, Frida Kahlo embodied the whole notion of culture for Chicana women. She represented all that we valued: courage, activism, personal strength, familia, beauty and artistic creativity. Individually and collectively she became an imagined ancestor we not only wanted, but needed. Her iconic image, her paintings and her struggle as a woman inspired us and moved us forward in our own movimiento.  —Amalia Mesa Bains

      Roberta Orona-Cordova’s Remembering Frida chronicles the life of Frida and the impact she’s made on Chicana women. The publication includes eleven original essays from a diverse group of authors along with Questions for Consideration and Response to expand learning opportunities and to reinforce comprehension of the material presented.
