Deborah Santana Empowers Underrepresented Voices in All the Women in My Family Sing
When it comes to gender equality and feminism, women of color are often left out of the conversation. Deborah Santana is on a mission to empower these underrepresented voices by giving access to a symphony of experiences that women of color have in today’s world.
Her new book, All the Women in My Family Sing highlights how important the inclusion of all women’s voices is to healing our world.The anthology includes essays by 69 women from ages 16 to 77. African American, Native American, Asian American, Muslim, Cameroonian, Kenyan, Liberian, Mexican American, Korean, Chinese American and LGBTQI women are represented in the collection.
“There has rarely been a day in my life that I have not been aware of my identity as a biracial woman of color, but ultimately, our similarities outweigh our differences,”
…says Santana who hopes to broaden cross-cultural understanding by showing people how very alike we are no matter our skin color, ethnic heritage, or place we live.
