It’s no secret Latinas are underrepresented in corporate America with only 5 percent sitting on Fortune 500 boards. The fact that of the 20 female CEOs at Fortune 500 companies, only four are women of color and none are Latina, paints a pretty grim reality. Despite this disparity, we rounded up 50 Latinas doing their thing at Fortune 500 companies. Whether working their way up the corporate ladder, or serving on the board, these mujeres prove we’re coming up in top-ranked corporations.
Julianne Moore, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, and Christy Turlington Burns are among a new wave of stars standing up for immigration reform by rocking fedoras and voicing their own immigrant stories.

When the topic of immigration reform and health care comes up, immigrants are oftentimes expected to be a drain on federal programs. But a new study published Wednesday in the journal Health Affairs is debunking that myth.

Leave it to Sofia Vergara—one of the sexiest, and according to Forbes magazine, "Most Powerful Women"—to get not one, but two wax figurines at Madame Tussauds.
The wax museum will unveil the curvaceous replicas June 4 in New York, an event the Colombian bombshell herself will attend.
Women may make up the majority of online users, trendsetters, and consumers, but we have a long way to go to reach proportionate amounts in the field of technology. Women account for only 5% of tech engineers and startup founders and represent 12% of all computer science graduates. Latinas are even less represented with only .03% of Latina freshmen majoring in computer science in 2006. Despite the low numbers, we tracked down 25 Latinas changing the face of technology and inspiring others to do the same.
Cinco de Mayo has become quite the controversy. Seeing non-Latinos walking around plastered and wearing sombreros every May 5 is annoying. Having to educate folks about it marking Mexico's short-lived victory over the French back in 1862 is exhausting.
