How many women are in the 1%? | Latina Leadership | Scoop.it
In the debate about top incomes, one aspect has been strikingly missing: gender. When we talk about the top 1%, how many of this section are women? Is there a glass ceiling that prevents women from reaching the very top of the income distribution? These are important questions. Whatever one thinks about the share of income…

Sheryl Sandberg's "Lean in" Message Not Enough for Women, Especially Professional Latinas

Sheryl Sandberg's "Lean in" Message Not Enough for Women, Especially Professional Latinas | Latina Leadership | Scoop.it
Any vacillation she has observed among her female colleagues has more to do with leaning in and getting hit by a glass wall (i.e., organizational barriers), than by their lack of motivation to step up. How long can we lean in and bang ourselves on a glass wall?

Latina Leaders: Plus size model says she loves encouraging women to love their bodies

Latina Leaders: Plus size model says she loves encouraging women to love their bodies | Latina Leadership | Scoop.it

Denise Bidot always wanted to be an actress, but when she moved to Los Angeles from Miami at 18 to pursue her dream, she was told that her 10 to 12 clothing size was more of  “the best friend body type,” and so she had trouble finding acting roles. Instead, she studied to be a makeup artist. As luck would have it, soon after, she was discovered by a photographer who asked her to partake in a photo shoot for plus size models, and that was the start of her career.

The half Puerto Rican, half Kuwaiti 26-year-old has been an international plus size model for the past seven years. Besides traveling the world to work with top fashion giants like Forever 21, she is also a single mom starring on NuvoTV’s “Curvy Girls,” and will be seen on HBO Latino’s “Habla” — a show featuring different Hispanic voices in the U.S. debuting on April 18.

“I originally thought that modeling was not my cup of tea, but when I realized how many women I’m affecting, I realized how important my job is,” says Bidot. “You don’t realize you are a trendsetter, but you are…I think ‘Curvy Girls’ opened that door more — women now feel beautiful internally and on the outside.”

She says she’s seen drastic changes in the past seven years — mainly, fashion editors now know what plus size fashion is.
