“As a huge Selena fan and Barbie collector, we want Mattel to create an official Selena doll in her likeness. There has yet to be any curvy Hispanic barbie dolls in any Barbie line and we think Selena is a perfect candidate for that kind of representation,” says Remy. I mean, yes!

Latina, Proud Feminist, Civil Engineer And Looks Good In A Hard Hat…Take That Boys

For Patricia Valoy, feminism comes naturally.

She’s a 29-year-old Dominican who worked hard for her Columbia University education and her career as a civil engineer. She was raised by her mother, Rayna, who left her abusive husband with her three daughters and found herself a job as a caretaker to make a living.

“She lived it,” Patricia said of her mother’s feminism. “She didn’t talk about it or wear a T-shirt.”

And that’s exactly what Patricia is doing. She knows she’s in a male-dominated field and in order to prove herself, she works harder and makes herself be heard in a room full of men. That means, instead of eventually becoming a feminist activist, she’s going to stay in her field and beat the odds, unlike many women who leave mid-career.

And while she’s at it, she’s determined to make a change, starting by changing all the signs that read “Men Only,” “Men Working,” “Train Men” and “Crewmen Lockers.”  She explains: “They could all be unisex.”

Go get ‘em girl!
