Women's History Month | Selena Quintanilla

Hello Everyone!    So who has heard of Selena? No, not Gomez. THE Selena Quintanilla. A Mexican-American woman born in Corpus Christi, Texas who revolutionized fashion and Tejano music. She was unfortunately murdered 21 years ago today... ,but I would like to focus on the impact she made on many lives during her short life. Selena began her singing career in a band called ''Los Dinos'' which was managed by her father. In fact, more than one of her album's went gold! The queen of Tejano was a Grammy winner who also created her own clothing line. Everyone knew how talented and special she was.

Women's History Month

Misogyny is alive in society today, women are suffering all around the world. Women should not stay quiet. You do not need a man's validation in order to be happy. Let's support each other.      Let's remember all the women in history and all the women who are currently fighting and have faced death in the name of equality. Those women are true heroes. The women who sacrifice everything in order for their children to be well. The strong women who suffer daily because they are not allowed to do even the simplest things. These women deserve a celebration. I'd like to thank all the women who have helped change society for the better.      Be brave,
