Abstract:The purpose of this study is to examine the reasons why these women decided to stay or leave their high school. More specifically, the theme of language and having access to bilingual education was one of the more salient issues that emerged throughout my study. Historical archives were examined to develop an understanding of what life was like for the Mexican/Latina/o community during this point in time. These women were critical in founding key institutions such as, the National Museum of Mexican Art, a bilingual health care system for indigent people and an organization that has been at the forefront of immigrant rights issues for the last twenty years.
