Numbering over 25 million, one out of every five women in America will be Latina. Unfortunately, this will also be the group with the least amount of personal, political, and economic power. They have great untapped talent and strength, but because the vast majority of Latina women, regardless of age, have been taught that their cultural traditions are sacrosanct and should not be questioned, most are not aware of how these very traditions limit them in virtually every aspect of their lives. Empowering Latinas is intended to help these millions of women realize their full potential.
