University of California Press

This chapter studies the issue of gender violence within Latin communities. It first looks at a certain chapter in American Encounters, a book about “the sociocultural confrontation between Mexicans and Anglos in the United States, where it deals with the issue of Chicano masculinity.” Next, the chapter studies the policing of feminist public talk on intracommunity violence, which is based on the hierarchical ranking of oppression. The term “conspiracy of silence” and the early feminist intervention in the area of jurisprudence are discussed. The chapter concludes with a study of the film Paulina, which is the first film that was made in the U.S. that represents the issue of sexual violence from an intersectional perspective.

Keywords:   gender violence, Latin communities, Chicano masculinity, oppression, conspiracy of silence, feminist intervention, Paulina
