This International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating in the best way we know how: looking back at the fiercest Latina trailblazers in history.

For one, we’re taking a look back at Mexican painter Frida Kahlo’s poignant self portraits — just as much as we’re singing along to Chavela Vargas’ version of “La Llorona.” Just the same, we’re watching Rita Moreno sashay onto the screen in “West Side Story,” reading about Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor’s come-up, crying-watching Michaela Jaé Rodriguez’s ground-breaking Golden Globe win, and drooling over Carolina Herrera’s fashion designs.

Truly, is there any better way to celebrate Latina magic?

While we could read and talk about Latinas making history all day, we thought it best to take the celebration up a notch. We devised a special International Women’s Day quiz to test your knowledge on some of the fiercest Latina trailblazers to ever pisar tierra.
