Great moments in tv history

The best part is how the hand giving the cigarette doesn’t belong to anyone in the room—no one is wearing that shirt.

Curandera - Gina Montoya

becauseofthiswoman:

Name: Gloria AnzalduaDates:1942-2004Why she rocks: She is the leading scholar of Chicano cultural theory and queer theory, and has written several books based on her life growing up on the Mexican-Texas border. She is well known for using a blend of languages in her writing to challenge her readers to decipher meanings on their own.
Quote: “Though we tremble before uncertain futures, may we meet illness, death and adversity with strength. May we dance in the face of our fears.”
Because of this woman… we have texts that challenge feminists and LGBT studies students to see issues from a multi-cultural perspective.

I just ordered this book for my son, excited to read it to him.


Fiesta Feminina-This is a beautiful collection of Mexican folktales.Drawing from Mexico’s rich cultural heritage, this book celebrates the courage and resilience of the feminine spirit through the stories of seven extraordinary Mexican women. Using radiant colours in a style reminiscent of famous Mexican muralists to capture the spark behind the stories, this folktale collection that will be enjoyed time and again, this is truly a fiesta for the eyes, the spirit and the heart.

I love this book, bought it for my kids when they were little as well as for my nieces and nephews.
