Las Mujeres Latinas Iconos #HispanicHeritageMonth

15th Sep 2013 / By Guest Contributor

September 15th to October 15th is Hispanic Heritage Month, a time to celebrate  Hispanic Americans who have shaped not only Hispanic American culture, but American culture.

This important month has been going strong since 1988, and according to, “September 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.”

We pay homage to the beautiful, vivacious Latina icons of today and yesterday, with their inspiring words. The five women we recognized:

  • Jennifer Lopez: American businesswoman, entertainer, philanthropist and producer.
  • Salma Hayek: Mexican American film actress, director and producer.
  • Rita Moreno: Puerto Rican singer, dancer and actress.
  • Paulina Rubio: Mexican singer, actress, hostess, model and businesswoman.
  • Frida Kahlo: Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán, who is best known for her self-portraits.
