For Latina women it can often seem like there are only two types of representation they see in the media. They’re either sexy and “spicy” or religious and family oriented. But is that really the case?

Latino USA host Maria Hinojosa speaks to writer, poet, and sex columnist for Cosmo for Latinas, Erika Sanchez about growing up in a “traditional” Mexican family while being an American girl, feminism, and facing fear.


B1_ErikaSanchezErika L Sánchez is a poet and writer living in Chicago. Her poems have appeared in Pleiades, Witness, Hunger Mountain, Crab Orchard Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Copper Nickel, and others. Her nonfiction has been published in Cosmopolitan for Latinas, NBCLatino, Truthout, Salon, Rolling Stone, Salon, The Guardian, and Al Jazeera.
