What is castillo?

Famous quotes containing the word castillo:

    I have more in common with a Mexican man than with a white woman.... This opinion ... chagrins women who sincerely believe our female physiology unequivocally binds all women throughout the world, despite the compounded social prejudices that daily affect us all in different ways. Although women everywhere experience life differently from men everywhere, white women are members of a race that has proclaimed itself globally superior for hundreds of years.
    —Ana Castillo (b. 1953)

    We live in a polarized world of contrived dualisms, dichotomies and paradoxes: light vs. dark and good vs. evil. We as Mexic Amerindians/mestizas are the dark. We are the evil ... or at least, the questionable.
    —Ana Castillo (b. 1953)

    Our goal should be to achieve joy.
    —Ana Castillo (b. 1953)
