I guess my feminism and my race are the same thing to me. They’re tied in one to another, and I don’t feel an alliance or an allegiance with upper-class white women. I don’t. I can listen to them and on some level as a human being I can feel great compassion and friendships; but they have to move from their territory to mine, because I know their world. But they don’t know mine. Sandra Cisneros, Chicana Feminist Thought

Sandra Cisneros uses stories to illustrate the troubles that young adolescents face when dealing with issues of their own ethnicity. The stories she tells are arranged in a way that the language makes the reader feel disjointed, much like the character, Esperenza feels throughout the story. She uses language to encourage the reader to feel a sense of empathy for the characters.
