Turns out, there’s a lot to learn from “Spy Kids: Armageddon,” the latest installment in Robert Rodriguez’s beloved franchise.
‘Jane the Virgin’ brought forth a new era of millennial, high-quality telenovelas showing strong Latina leads.
As we get close to International Women’s Day (March 8), let’s take a moment to highlight some feel-good Latina-led films.
This Latina Equal Pay Day, we can’t help but think that the size of Latinas’ paystubs is tied to how invisible we are. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Last week, The Golden Globes announced their nominees, and it didn’t take us long to realize that no Latinas were nominated this year. Sigh. To be clear, we weren’t surprised but disappointed.
