Pillars of the Family

Pillars of the Family

Who is (are) the “pillar(s)” of your family and why?

This scene presents us with the pivotal role of Latinas and Latin American women as mothers and pillars of the family. Traditionally, these women have been expected to prioritize their family and subdue desires of independence and professional development until they fulfill their roles as nurturers and caretakers. Those who have defied this expectation have shown the versatility and resilience of Latinas and Latin American women as they take on multiple roles and achieve their self-defined dreams.
