Yvette pictureOn behalf of the Department of Chicana/o Studies we would like to send a warm congratulations to Dr.Yvette Flores and wish her well during her 2014-2016 Presidential term of the American Psychological Association Division 35 Section III. Concerns of Hispanic Women/Latinas.

“The purpose of Section III of Division 35 is to assemble individuals who are interested in a broad spectrum of issues affecting Hispanic women/Latinas. Section III has a long history. It began in 1977 as a task force within Division 35 and was led by Martha Bernal, PhD. In 1986 it became a committee within Division 35, and in 2003 it was named a Section. Section III has benefitted from the leadership and participation of inspiring Latinas such as Oliva Espin, PhD; Hortensia Amaro, PhD; Maryann Santos de Barona, PhD; Cynthia de las Fuentes, PhD; Alberta M. Gloria, PhD; Rachel Navarro, PhD; Carrie Castañeda-Sound, PhD; and Aida Hurtado, PhD. The current president, Yvette Flores, PhD, continues the stellar leadership and dedication of previous presidents to developing and advancing feminist approaches to Latina women and psychology.”
