“We represented a new generation of muralists depicting our own reality at that present moment of time, exploring new ideas and new styles, and speaking about the Latinas who lived in the Mission District.”

“We were saying that being a woman is a revolution in society.”
“We were Chicanas. Our murals had to be special. Our aim was to get the murals to communicate with the community.” —Patricia Rodriguez.
