1. What aspect of her life does Moraga discuss in the introduction?

Moraga, a half-Mexican, half-white American lesbian, discusses how her various identities have affected her life, particularly her life with her family.

2. What role did the Catholic Church play in Moraga's acceptance of her lesbianism?

She knew she was a lesbian from a very young age but was unwilling to embrace it because of her Catholic faith. She felt like she was damned and that there was nothing she could do for it.

3. How did leaving the Church impact Moraga?

The moment she left the Church, a community to which she belonged for her entire life, was a tearful moment, but a moment she knew she must pass through.

4. What pressure did Moraga's family put on her and what did she learn about docile obedience?

Her family, too, put enormous pressure on her to conform. She recalls how the women in her family, herself included, would go visit her grandmother, each vying for her approval. She realized only later in life that one must transcend such groveling because it signifies a kind of docile obedience both to family and to tradition. This is an obedience which can crush one's spirit.
