Being a feminist today in 2015

Posted by Yajanetsy Ruano on March 26, 2015 at 5:40pm 0 Comments

Today, Feminism is seen as a thing of the past, and I haven't met many Latinas who Identify as a feminist, from my point of view it might be a culture conflict because In the old days, most of the time feminists were predominantly anglo, but its grown to more then that. Feminism isn't a woman's issue, its everyone's. We are all in the cause together, to make it equal for all. Feminism is important for the on coming generations because women need to keep standing up for their beliefs and…

Feminism in SXSW

Posted by mariel on March 26, 2015 at 8:40am 0 Comments

Attending SXSW last week for Latinitas actually proved very empowering as far as female identity! 

In a world where women often face discrimination in the workplace SXSW panels were nonetheless bursting with successful female leaders.

From directors at mult-million dollar companies like Uber and HBO, to fashion leaders like Lucky Magazine editor-in-chef Eva Chen and makeup guru Michelle Phan, SXSW presented a diverse pool of business genius that also happened to be…

Feminism

Posted by Eunice Miyuki Sanchez Acosta on March 26, 2015 at 11:32am 0 Comments

In my opinion feminism is the movement to seek equal rights and opportunities for men and women. Not only employment rights, but in education, political, social and cultural. Fighting to have the same right and opportunities is very important because every human being is the same. What a feminist do is fight for women’s rights, the right to vote, the right to have a good job, the right to get paid well, the right to be respected, the right to speak up their mind and all the rights women…

Advice I Would Give To A Younger Version Of Myself

Posted by Jackeline on March 25, 2015 at 1:47pm 0 Comments

If I were ever given the chance to give advice to someone who is like a younger version of myself I would tell her to be strong. I would tell her that life is very short and it's  her job to make the most out of it and happiness is not a guaranteed aspect of life, it is something that you have to strive for every day. Happiness to me is being a place in life where you are constantly trying to better the life you have all while being kind to everyone that crosses your path. This as well as…

CONGRATS TO LATINITAS FOR WINNING IMPORTANT AWARD!

This post is a bit late as everyone has been busy with SXSW [Austin, Texas arts festival] and the Women's History Blogathon but I want to take a moment to celebrate the success of Latinitas. Last week the Latinitas co-founders [Laura Donnelly and Alicia Rascon] flew to Miami to attend the award ceremony for their nomination for the Positive Impact Award of Hispanicize 2015. The candidates were many, and all doing important work to advance Hispanics in USA, but Latinitas took home the prize!So…See More

If I Was President....

Just becoming the first woman president of the United States is a huge milestone in itself. It is a milestone for women but all of society as well. It’s no secret that women still aren’t treated equally in the US, and it’s time for something to change.As the first woman president I would put focus on eliminating gender bias at the workplace. Women began working in professional settings decades ago. But age old prejudices still stand in our way. Women sometimes get paid less than men for…See More

If I were the first female president...

What an intimidating question!There are sooo many important ways to address this, but I will keep it brief and focus on issues that are particularly close to my heart. If I were first female president I would work hard to ensure that not only are women in the USA treated with respect and diginity but that our sisters in other countries are as well. Reality is, though discrimination and misogyny [a dislike of women] exist in this country we are also INCREDIBLY lucky. in many other countries in…See More

The Importance of Being a Feminist

Being a feminism is the most important title that I could ever give myself. I seek to improve the lives of others via the use of equality. I actively believe that everyone, who is qualified, should get the chance to do what they want without feeling constricted by societal norms. Let’s start out by defining this term. Don’t let the fem- suffix fool you, Feminism is for everyone. Even though the movement did at first seek to expand on the rights of women (such as the right to vote), modern…See More

What Feminism Means To Me

Feminism to me, is a belief system where you are an advocate for gender equality. Feminism in my life has been played out through me wanting to be seen as "worthy" as men are because I feel our society really devalues women and their voice. Being a feminist is wanting a better future, where your daughters and sons do not feel that they have to be forced into a role they are unhappy with just to meet society's expectations. Feminism to me is wanting to live in a world where you are seen as who…See More
