Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodriguez

Overview

Abuse, sexism, and racism are all-too-commonly combined experiences for girls and women of color. Being devalued and discounted by her family, culture, and society told Nicaraguan immigrant Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez that she wasn't worth an education, but she got one anyway.

Mojica Rodríguez was continually told that she didn't belong in academic settings. This bias came from Latino culture's restrictions on what women could be and systemic class and racial oppression from white America.

For Brown Girls with Sharp Edges and Tender Hearts: A Love Letter to Women of Color was written to demystify and democratize academic theory for women of color who don't have access. The book is Mojica Rodríguez's story, told through the social theories of colonialism, systemic oppression, white privilege, and patriarchy that she fought hard to learn at prestigious universities, and how to survive them as a brown girl.

Favorite Quote

"Despite rare exceptions, meritocracy is a myth. Most people are not able to work so hard that they are no longer poor. Some of the hardest working people I know were born poor and will die poor."
