This really depends which conflict you mean. Generally speaking, The House on Mango Street traces Esperanza Cordero's coming-of-age through a series of vignettes about her family, neighborhood, and secret dreams. The story follows Esperanza's self-empowerment and will to overcome obstacles of poverty, gender, and race.
