Lisa Sánchez González explores the highlights and lowlights in her journey from kindergarten to tenure as a Boricua feminist scholar deemed "radical" in U.S. academia. Her essay charts the challenges that the she (and many other Latina girls identified early in their education as "gifted") overcame in public schools and the pattern of racial, class and gender stereotyping that perpetually repeated itself in her academic career, as well as how it uniquely deformed the shape of her first tenure review. Sánchez González, who was denied tenure at the University of Texas-Austin, discusses how the Freedom Of Information Act made it possible for her to review her tenure case.

Keywords:   tenure denial, Freedom of Information Act, Boricua, feminism, University of Texas-Austin, discrimination
