March is Women's History Month, let's celebrate it!
We have many videos and activities to help you spice up this month, and share with your students the achievements of some of the greatest Hispanic women.

1 Mujeres hispanas que hicieron historia (Escape room - Spanish 2 / intermediate)

A virtual escape room that your students will love!
Follow our video tutorial to easily set up the room, and have your students look for the codes they need to escape.
In order to get those codes, they must learn about the life of several remarkable Hispanic women: Sonia Sotomayor, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Yalitza Aparicio, Diana Trujillo, Isabel Allende and Rosalía.
The escape room consists on 3 short videos, a reading with questions and a listening comprehension activity.
You can also use the resources individually to talk about these women in class.

2 Mujeres pioneras (Lesson - Spanish 3 / advanced)

It wasn't easy for Frida Kahlo to become a successful artist.
Gallery owners didn't take her seriously because she was a woman. Or they just saw Diego River's wife, and not an extremely talented painter.
When Frida first tried to exhibit, the art world was owned and dominated by men. Even today we find similar worlds were women are hardly present.
Comics are an example: most superheroes are men, and most writers and illustrators are also men.
La Borinqueña is a female superhero with strong Puerto rican roots.
In this lesson we study these two examples (one real, the other fiction) of women that succeeded in a traditional male field.
