"We need more Latina role models. What we learn from The Book of Latina Women is that they have always been here—some in the shadows, some in the spotlight—making a difference with their passion.”

"Fascinating information! It inspires, instructs and whets our curiosity, making us want to delve deeper into the times and lives of these Latinas. This compendium of remarkable Latinas is a must-read for all to better understand and appreciate the unique and distinct contributions these women have made to civilization.

Described with dignity, respect and passion, this thoughtful and diverse compilation captures the spirit of these remarkable women's lives. Thank you for writing this book. How proud I am to be a Latina!”

"When I was a little girl, I would often visit the local library seeking escape from the projects. I wish The Book of Latina Women had been available to me back then. From a 15th century Jewish businesswoman, to the first gold-medalist in women's skateboarding at the X Games, to a pioneer in the field of cloning, Sylvia Mendoza has compiled an impressive collection of profiles of strong, smart and successful role models. The Book of Latina Women belongs on the shelves of every library, bookstore and home to inspire and empower future generations of kick-ass Latinas."”
-Marcela Landres, Publisher, the Latinidad Newsletter

"IMPRESSIVE OVERVIEW OF THE FAMOUS AND SHOULD BE FAMOUS Latina girls sadly lack for readily available role models who reflect the many-hued Latin experience. High time we had a guidebook. Sylvia Mendoza's accessible and well-written chronicle of famous Latinas takes us from the world of politics to film, gutter to glamour; with eye-opening revelations in mini-biographical overviews. This book is a must for family libraries, and definitely for school libraries!”
-Berta Platas, Author, Lucky Chica; Cinderella Lopez; Names I Call My Sister

"GREAT GUIDE TO LATINA WOMEN OF PASSION & ACCOMPLISHMENT Concise enough to be a reference guide, yet meaty enough I coudln't put it down, Sylvia Mendoza's choice of Latina women and the material she selects to highlight for each, make a compelling read. From La Malinche (my favorite) to Selena, we learn who and what drove the lives, passions and successes of these amazing, but often overlooked women. From trailblazers to entertainers, doctors to activists and leaders, the glimpses into their lives educate and inspire. I'd love to read the same delightful sweep of 150 Latina men, 150 Black women, etc., etc. This informative and entertaining and charming book is a must for EVERY library: town, school or home!”
-Judy A. Bernstein, Author, They Poured Fire on us From the Sky: The True Story of Three Lost Boys From Sudan

"AN INSPIRATIONAL BOOK FOR EVERY WOMAN For so long women's accomplishments in society have been overlooked. This book does a marvelous job of detailing the many great contributions of women, and in particular, of Latina women. For any Latina and her daughters, this is an inspirational book that shows just how far you can reach!!”
