Through my sculptures, I educate people about the political, social, economic effects, and realities of being a Latina woman through a lens outside the white women hegemony. This intersectional feminist aspect of my work is crucial because it explains the direct connection to my personal experiences as a Latina feminist, and involves ideas and realities different from white feminists. Important historical and contemporary women's history is not taught as regularly as events involving male figures. Unless someone prioritizes and researches history and events involving women, the majority will never learn about women’s history as in-depth as men’s history. Making these ideas and events into 3D sculptures forces us to accept the realness, truthfulness, and tangibility of women’s history and events impactful to society today.
