Hello Duhmericana Listeners!
We’ve had such a great time exploring the wonderful world of girl power during the month of March! As podcasters, professionals, and Latinas, we have resonated with so many of the topics we’ve covered this month. We’ve also had the amazing chance to connect with some really cool women doing great things in the arts!
This week, we talk about some other women, both past and present, who have made lasting impact in women's history and in the movement as a whole.
Wilx shared her admiration for the Mirabal sisters, four Dominican sisters who were killed at the hands of a dictatorship regime, because they refused to bend to its power. Her modern-day pick was the brace Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani activist, who survived an attack on her life for seeking an education, yet brought education to even more girls through her story.
Benzy's historical pic was author Toni Morrison, who wrote books like Beloved and Song of Solomon, bringing stories about black lives and history in the south though strong female characters. She also shared about Emma Watson, who played two of her favorites: Hermoine and Belle as an actress, and is a UN Ambassador and spearheaded of "He For She," in real life, which encourages men to stand up for women's rights.
Tune in to the episode to hear about all of these incredible gals, and don't forget to share your thoughts! Have you heard about them before? Have any women you admire and want to share with us?
