March is Women’s History Month and it’s time to recognize the Latina athletes who came before us and made the sports world what it is today. One of my all-time favorite movies is A League of Their Own. If you haven’t seen it, it’s an absolute feminist must, but be sure to have a box of tissues close by. These women revolutionized the baseball industry and changed the rhetoric for women everywhere. As a young girl, I watched this movie with my grandma and it allowed me to dream bigger and have confidence that I could compete as an athlete.
Women can be strong, fast, and just as powerful as men. Check out these eight Latina athletes who kicked ass then and still inspire now.
