I am amazed by the incredible photography, art, video art and poetry that is coming from Latin America. Here, in the Best of Latin America, you are not only given an opportunity to witness the work of 10 inspiring young female Latin American artists and compare and contrast their work, but you're also able to learn, through comparison, what today's young Latin American women are thinking, feeling, obsessing about, passionate about, fighting for, and yearning for.

Come and vote for your favorites! But don't forget to tell us what these 10 stories tell you about young Latin American women!

Thank you Kathryn, I did Out of Beat, because I think that to be honest with what you are, and embrace your identity rather than trying to be someone else is very important. I try to remind myself about this every day...because a personal point of view is always unique. And of course...dancing! that always makes me happy, because that's how I move! and the body is sometimes more honest than your mind and we should listen to it always.

"El sostén no hace a la mujer" logra una reflexión mientras se esboza una sonrisa cuyos motivos son desde pena hasta complicidad. Un trabajo sensible y honesto de Brenda Jiménez.

I think "Potasa" by Giselle fiallo from D.R. is definitely the best cultural identity research which defines Dominican women´s lack of racial identity. She amazingly conveys the sensation one feels regarding our wanting to "whiten" ourselves through hair straightening products. Congratulations Giselle. Great Job!!!

Hola! Me parecio muy interesante y con un concepto de ver el mundo y a la mujer diferente "El sosten no hace la mujer"....Felicidades a Brenda Jimenez por su creatividad para encontrar un tema que probablemente sea tabu pero del cual estamos involucradas .....

No he visto trabajo mas interesante, ya que el concepto que la creadora maneja es dejabu revelador para muchos otros es una forma de expresion de la mujer latina, es simplemente la expresion misma del sentir de la mujer.

OK, I admit it, you are all right! Potasa 100% Relaxer is an amazing story. So I also have to vote for it! But I also must vote for "Mayan Women" by the Guatemalan Andrea Aragon and "A Bra does not make a women" by the Mexican Brenda Jimenez.

maybe because i'm dominican,maybe because i'm black since my rude awakening when i was 16, this piece touches me deeply. i've dealt with the imagery of the white race being flaged around in our faces as a model of one should aspire,and dealt also with the terrible fate of those who embrace blackness just because they are (in fact) black.this piece shows how dominicans aren't aware of how black they are; is ignorance at it's purest ,to throw some light on the matter you gotta laugh first and then realize that dominican REALLY don't know what they are,but certainly.... they don't wanna be black!!...that turns people like me and (i belive..) the author into interesting good to have white company on the black side of this "colorful" dominican society..big ups to gisselle..and, of course, , my vote.

Definitely, “Potasa, 100% Relaxer” is the best for me. It represents the reality that the Dominican society is living. Having a “decurled hair” is a necessity for Dominican women regardless of social class; it is a way of living in order to fulfill the beauty standards. This story is excellent!

I loved Potasa, 100% Relaxer. I was born and live in the dominican republic, and I can reassure that having straight hair is an unwritten rule in the dominican society. Women and even men undergo super expensive chemical treatments to remove their natural curls. Since the moment babies are born, people are interested in two aspects, wheather the baby is black or white, and is the hair curly or straight. Its crazy what women in this country are willing to pay to have straight hair. Straight hair is the synonim of beauty, fitting in, acceptence and most sadly uprising your own self esteam. People here actually feel better about themselves once they have blown out those miserable curls. Congratulations, Giselle,you trully acheived depecting our pathetic reality.

Without doubt, my favorite is Potasa, 100% Relaxer.
It truly depicts the denial of an identity; the pressure to belong, even at the cost of giving the "blind-eye" to your true self. The story is perfect.
