Overview

The 70 Hispanic women youll read about here are 20th-century American women who trace their roots to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Spain or any of the Spanish-speaking countries of Central & South America. While their backgrounds are richly varied, they share a common bond — their fierce determination to succeed. From entrepreneur & baseball team owner Linda Alvarado to tennis pro Gigi Fernandez, from astronaut Ellen Ochoa to actress Madeleine Stowe, & from sociologist Maxine Baca Zinn to supermodel Christy Turlington, each has succeeded, laudably, often overcoming cultural & gender barriers.
