ENTER THE WORLD OF GREAT LATIN AMERICAN WOMEN!
“Great Latin American Women” is an animated series which celebrates incredible women from across the region. We have already produced Season 1 comprising 21 short films which tell the stories of 21 amazing women in a fun and accessible way. We now want to create Season 2 to incorporate more stories of daring, pioneering and influential women, past and present.
No two women are alike. They come from different time periods and walks of life, and their contributions are as diverse as their experiences. By telling their stories we can inspire young Spanish speakers from across the American continent and beyond.
