Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Women are so under-potrayed compared to men in the media, film, etc etc. WOMEN CAN BE LEADERS TOO! No I'm not gonna make you a sandwich, I can be out there doing anything a guy can. For years, women have been potrayed as having to work in the kitchen or doing things for their men. How many female directors have you seen in the film business that are given credit? When have you seen a women doing a hard labor job such as a mechanic-getting down and dirty working on cars-, a police officer, firefighters, etc.? you don't. I personally have been discouraged to do certain things  because women' aren't supposed to'. There are women out there that do these jobs, and I think that they should be given more credit. No, we don't have to be in the kitchen making you dinner, or working with clothes and girly little things that men don't think require much work just because we're female. We all deserve a chance in doing what we want to do, in being what we want to be, and getting the same advantages as men because we can do it just as good as they can. If I want to be an engineer, a lawyer, a pilot, a mechanic, gosh darnit I am going to be it! We can do anything a guy can and BETTER.
