Term paper7.626 Words / ~20 pages Introduction As the title suggests, this paper will display the struggles and tensions that Mexican-Ameri­cans face within the Anglo-America­n society. First, the main Chicano/a history will be reflected and already give an insight into the differences in cultures and the resulting problems. In the next chapter, the Chicano and Chicana movements are depicted as a result of the years of suppression. Important to focus on are the differences in male and female basis and form of expression.
