These Latinas move and inspire us thanks to their successful careers, growing empires, and charity works. There's no doubt that these 10 mujeres are helping make the world a better place and we are thrilled to honor them in our annual "Mujeres of the Year" list! Without further ado, we proudly present our picks!
Eva Longoria, 37
She graduated from Desperate Housewives and has officially become a force behind the camera as executive producer of Lifetime’s Devious Maids and NBC’s Ready for Love. Even more inspiring is the Texan’s view on Latinos in Hollywood, “When the Latino community complains that we aren't on TV and in movies and we're not reflected, then I say get behind the camera and write it and produce it and direct it. We're not going to sit here and wait for someone else to do that,” said Latina’s November cover model.
Besides her work in the industry, the Mexican American star also helped rock the vote as the co-chair of President Barack Obama's reelection campaign. Who can forget her moving speech at the DNC when she reflected on her humble beginnings and expressed, “The Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy's flipping burgers, she needed a tax break, but the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not.”
