She currently writes and teaches in northern California. In her poetry, fiction, essays, and autobiography, she writes eloquently of the indignities a Chicana lesbian feminist overcomes as she escapes the strictures of patriarchal Chicano traditions and confronts the injustices of dominant culture.
Chicana mestizaje in the late twentieth century can be seen as a new genre that describes the cultural and linguistic global connections between Chicana writers and writers of the Americas.

These issues culminate in what she calls a new consciousness for the women who examine and question the restrictions placed on them in the borderlands of the United States.
She also provides alternative metaphors to the ones promoted by androcentric psychologists and priests. Through these icons mestizas can unlearn the masculinist versions of history, religion, and myth. Mestiza methodology offers strategies for unearthing a razed indigenous history as a process of coming to consciousness as political agents of change.
