CODE CHICA EVENT WAS AWESOME!

Saturday was the Code Chica gaming and coding event in Austin, Texas. We got together a large group of girls to learn about envisioning and producing creative games. Joining us were Latinitas supporters, including Facebook, who discussed with the girls their own paths to success in the technological world. The girls all imagined and created their own video game characters and designed looks and storylines for them. Then, they used technology to bring their ideas to life on the computer…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

Feminism in SXSW

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 largely female. Being able to…See More

The best part of being female is also the hardest.

In my opinion, the hardest thing about being female is also the best thing about it. It is an undeniable FACT that every human who has ever lived was born of a woman. As females we bear that legacy. Whether or not we ever personally have children, we are part of a legacy of LIFE. Nonetheless pregnancy, childbirth, and childrearing are also probably the hardest parts of being a female. You know what they say: Nothing worth it comes easy. So, in honor of Women's History Month, please remember to…See More
