This first authoritative guide to Latina self-esteem introduces the concept of marianismo, which defines the Hispanic woman's traditional social role just as machismo ordains how the ideal man should behave. Filled with real-life success stories and wise, compassionate advice, The Maria Paradox details the growth process by which any Latina in North America can enjoy the best of both worlds and become her own person at last.
