Hijas Americanas: Growing up Latina

Image found at: http://rosiemolinary.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/hijas-americanas-cover.png

I’ve spent a lot of time talking about the hair identity issues confronting women, often with a focus on African-American women. I just Googled “Hispanic women hair” and came across a very interesting video (found at: http://rosiemolinary.com/hijas-americanas/) that summarizes Rose Molinary’s book Beauty, body image and growing up Latina. While the video is geared towards Latinas it has universal appeal. I would love to read your thoughts. How can we help women of all cultural backgrounds embrace their authentic beauty?
