Bodies exchange cells with their environments without losing coherence, and the passage of blood, food, and air reveals bodies to be intertwined with the space around them, absorbing some elements and expelling others, as answered to the questions in the previous chapters. This follows a question of what do permeable and migratory politics of illness have to do with “Chicana feminism” which is soon after answered here. Furthermore, the analysis of Chicana feminist art implicitly suggests that identity politics are the key to ending Chicanas' marginalization. In addition, the idea of postmodernism disputes the idea of repressing its meaning and characterization.
