After spending five years as a member of the manufactured, yet super successful pop group, Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello is officially a solo artist. With the break, and an outspoken stance on the anti-immigration sentiments coming from our new White House (she penned a thoughtful essay on her personal experience emigrating to the U.S.), the 20-year-old Cuban and Mexican immigrant is clearly her own woman. Whether her move will be another group-to-solo-star hit (à la Fergie) or miss (sorry Nicole Scherzinger) remains to be seen. This is a makeor-break year, but one that she seems more than ready for.
Feminist messages are everywhere these days: music, advertisements, films, schools, shoot, even one of our presidential candidates is a loud and proud feminista. But while girl power has hit the mainstream, that doesn’t mean it’s always inclusive. In fact, so much of what represents feminism leaves out the issues and contributions of mujeres of color.
We’re not with that! That’s why we are launching Unapologetic, our new series, hosted by ecuatoriana Nathalie Farfan, that’ll bring the matters of Latina feministas to the forefront.
Wondering what the f**k is going on this election season and what a Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton presidency could mean for Latinxs? Count on our new video series Opinionated, hosted by Roger Quesada, to break it down and keep it real.
