As we have discussed previously, representation in media matters. It does. We are not getting tired of saying it for as long as there is still the need to unceasingly remind people of it.

Here are ten Latinas that are currently helping with representation and reshaping the industry.

Latin American women have been tirelessly painting, creating, singing, and advocating for equality and social justice. In fact, The Hammer Museum had a special exhibition and digital archive with the works of 120 Latin American women artists and collectives. Here are five Latina Artists that deserve just as much recognition as Kahlo.

But some might argue that extreme diets in which an individual is deprived of an entire food group (in the case of the Keto diet, carbs) are also extreme behaviors involving food, especially if the goal is fast or drastic weight loss.

This year, there have been countless Women History Month-related events. The entire nation is hosting a myriad of gatherings, and, of course, there are still plenty of virtual options available. In Miami alone, we’ve seen more events around women this month than in recent years. From HispanicPro to the Jefa Panel, women — especially Latinas — are creating the spaces that we so much deserve.
