Women Street Artists of Latin America: Art Without Fear/ Grafiteras y Muralistas de América Latina: Arte Sin Miedo is a book about Latin American women creating visual art in public spaces. It includes interviews, portraits of the artists, and photographs of their work. 

The women interviewed work in Colombia, Peru, Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Mexico as muralists making legal art, and as graffiti and street artists working outside of legal boundaries. There are stories of mothers who work alongside their daughters, gallery artists who have made the street their canvas, the first women writing graffiti in their cities, and those who have recently begun working. This breadth of stories is vital to understanding challenges women face in street art as well as illustrating possibilities for street art's influence on the world. 

The book is bilingual, with English and Spanish text.
