Writing at the intersection of motherhood, feminism and my Latinidad

Latinas in the news

* Lynda Carter does not think that Sarah Palin is a wonder woman, "She's the anti-Wonder Woman. She's judgmental and dictatorial, telling people how they've got to live their lives. And a superior religious self-righteousness … that's just not what Wonder Woman is about." Thanks to Broadsheet for the quote. Too bad that Lynda does like McCain thou. Can't she take that lasso of truth to McCain over those lying ads?

* There is only ONE Latina running as a challenger for a US House seat and she was a recent guest voz at Latina Lista:

Latinas have come so far both as businesswoman and community leaders, but we have much more work to do. As we progress successfully through the business and finance worlds, we must make similar progress in the political world.

Our voices and our experiences must be represented in Congress.

Only a Latina entrepreneur knows the struggles and barriers that another Latina entrepreneur must overcome to succeed, and in our House of Representatives, we need more representatives who can speak on our behalf.


It's so good to see more Latina voices in the news especially around politics!
