You can’t celebrate Women’s History Month without celebrating the advocacy and general badassery demonstrated by Latinas.
Latinas have been fighting for social, racial and reproductive justice right in our very own backyard for decades ― even centuries. It’s about time we recognized their contributions to our nation, and gave them the props they deserve.
So in honor of Women’s History Month, here are 9 Latinas (to name only a few) who’ve changed the ways in which we all view our bodies, sex, race and the world.
We invite you to shoutout any Latinas who you feel deserve recognition this Women’s History Month and beyond in the comments section below.
