‎"The  struggle is inner: Chicano, indio, American Indian, mojado, mexicano,  immigrant Latino, Anglo in power, working class Anglo, Black, Asian—our  psyches resemble the bordertowns and are populated by the same people.  The struggle has always  been inner, and is played out in outer terrains. Awareness of our  situation must come before inner changes, which in turn come before  changes in society. Nothing happens in the “real” world unless it first  happens in the images in our heads.”— Gloria E. Anzaldúa
