Within the current political discourse and political turmoil, representation of women’s races, identities, cultures, precisely of minority women, continue to be under discussion.  Women critics and writers have discussed and examined how current political discourse have changed the understanding of identity in connection with ethnicity, race, color, and language. Identity is formed and shaped by culture, beliefs, race, ethnicity, and space among several other factors. Stuart Hall argues “Identity is never complete, always in process, and always constituted within, not outside, representation.” With this in mind, how complex then this process of construction becomes when color, race, or religion emerges as defining factor of whether or not one belongs?
