Third Wave Feminisms – María Cruz

Youth activist and artist María Cruz related her experiences as a child crossing the border between Mexico and the United States. She acknowledged that although the term “feminism” didn’t enter into her personal lexicon until she learned about it in an academic context, it was the influence of the strong women in her family that inspired her to be a feminista and later, video art activist working with the organization REACH LA.

María Cruz spoke on the panel “Third Wave Feminisms” at Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions: 2007 CalArts Feminist Art Symposium, a student-organized project that took place at CalArts on March 10, 2007.
