Why are you proud to be a Latina?

I haven't been able to be in Mexico for a little more than a month now, and though it doesn't seem as much I miss it already. I miss Sundays in the bazaar del monu where you can find people selling secondhand items, but not for the profit only for the experience of being somewhere on Sunday mornings, and where the braceros still meet to protest. 

I miss going to the mercado with my mother on viernes de cuaresma to eat fish tacos and lentils, because my mom was too lazy to…

The F Word

The "F" word for me means choice. Choosing my clothes either being sweat pants and an oversize t shirt or shorts and a tank top. For other means choosing to wear a hijab or not, wearing a dress to prom or a suit. 

It means choosing a career path based on what I like, not what's expected of me. For other means staying at home mom, working full time, or not having children at all. Still there's a space for an option.

It means knowing that I have a space to move around and get…

What's Feminism for our Latinitas?

"Yo creo que feminismo es una mujer que tiene derechos y que cree en ella misma."

-Michelle

"Para mi ser feminista es estar orgullosa de ser mujer. Ser feminista seria estar en un balance de igualdad tanto para las mujeres y los hombres. Saber que las mujeres no son menos ni mas que los hombres ni los hombres mas o menos que la mujer."

-Heidi

Feminism means to me that both males and females should be treated equally and should be able to do the…

The Latinitas Spotlights.

Spotlight a Latina who has changed your life and/or history.

My Tia or aunt Dolores. I think she is a good example or a successful Latina in the United States. Although she came to this country without having any perspective on what was going to happen in the future. What she did was that she had to give the best of her to be successful. Although she is not rich or owns anything she maintains a community good and happy.

Yo admiro a mi mamá…

I joined Latinitas because I think Latinxs and women in general are not fairly represented in the media. This reason is that there are not that many women and Latinas in the newsroom or as producers. I want to be inside the newsrooms I want to tell stories…

#ShePersisted

She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertherless, she persisted.

This Wednesday Senator Elizabeth Warren read a letter written by Coretta Scott King to oppose Jeff Session's appointment as  Attorney General. In this 1986 letter King accused Sessions of discriminating against black voters in his role as a federal prosecutor. 

As she read, Warren was interrupted by Senator Mitch McConnell who order her to sit and remain…

A Letter from a Feminist that didn't attend the Women's March.

Sisters:

I'm sorry for not standing with you. Sorry for getting too comfortable. Sorry for thinking that I had more important issues to attend to. Sorry for separating myself from the political. 

This week in particular I found myself feeling down. A lot of changes in my life with new responsibilities. I find myself with water on my neck and this is why I thought I couldn't attend the march, but this is the most important reason for me to go.

I would have found support and…
