Empowering LATINA/e Rights and wrongs through storytelling
Through feature films, social media posts, and nourishing messaging, MALFLORA studio creates a community that strives to tell stories of strength, empowerment, love, and freedom for Latina/e womxn.
In the United States, the Latina/e population has been historically misrepresented in print and broadcast media, and most recently on the Internet, through the hyper-sexualization of Latina girls and women and the upholding of damaging stereotypes.
Latina/e people are reduced to historically concentrated tropes that serve as a contrast for their white counterparts, such as having little to no education, inability to speak English, and only visibly seen in roles and positions of menial and task-based labor.
While this is a reality for thousands of Latina/e womxn across the country, the association of illegal drugs, the hyper-sexualization of Latina/e bodies (regardless of age), and the double standards for how a Latina/e is supposed to behave all coalesce to create a dangerous and suffocating environment for this population to live and thrive.
