Badass Books: The Maria Paradox

Here's one for you: The Maria Paradox. Although a cultural-specific self-help book, I think this could apply to men and women from all cultures. Granted, not all people deal with the specific cultural pulls Latinas face, all women have come from a history of oppression. Check it out!

Official Press Release:

THE MARIA PARADOX, written by Drs. Rosa Gil and Carmen Vazquez, is a unique self-help guide for Hispanic women and the men who love them.

The authors challenge the machismo-reinforcing idea of “marianismo,” a centuries-old belief system that in effect tells Latinas: "Don't forget a woman's subservient place; never put your own needs first; sex is for making babies.”

Filled with self-help exercises, this clearly written manual offers practical advice on how to build support networks, overcome passivity, forge career paths, change or get out of abusive relationships and increase sexual fulfillment.

Filled with real-life success stories and wise, compassionate advice, THE MARIA PARADOX details how Latinas can enjoy the best of both worlds.
