La Nueva Chicana
The old women going to pray
does her part,
The young mother hers,
The old man sitting on the porch,
The young husband going to work,
But let’s not forget the young,
Chicana
Bareheaded girl fighting for equality,
Unshawled girl living for a better world,
Let’s not forget her,
Because,
She is LA NUEVA CHICANA
Wherever you turn,
Wherever you look
You’ll see her,
She’s still the soft brown-eyed
Beauty you knew,
There’s just one difference,
A big difference,
She’s on the go spreading the word.
VIVA LA RAZA
Is her main goal too,
She is no longer the silent one,
Because she has cast off the
Shawl of the past to show her face,
She is LA NUEVA CHICANA
by Ana Montes
This poem, written by accomplished poet Ana Montes, poignantly illustrates the beliefs of a true Chicana Feminist. Montes begins the poems by exploring the stereotypical roles of Latinos, depicting the older woman as focused on prayer, and the husband acting as the provider. Montes juxtaposes these conservative characters when she introduces the Chicana. She describes this woman as a fighter for equality with the goal of changing and bettering the world. She employs the metaphor of a shawl to represent the bonds of oppression that Chicana women had to break in order to gain civil rights. The Chicana in the poem is bareheaded and in the end, Montes writes “ She is no longer the silent one because she has cast off the shawl of the past to show her face”. This woman Montes is describing is not intended to be interpreted as an individual, but functions as a portrait of Chicanas as a whole. Montes also carefully points out that this woman is still beautiful and feminine, but she goes much deeper than physical beauty. This was potentially written as a critique of Chicano men asserting that feminism somehow violated the traditional role of a Chicana woman. This poem is unquestionably eloquent and powerful at the same time.
