Today on the anniversary of the release of biographical film, #Selena , we're highlighting her for being the first female Tejano artist to win a Grammy and have her album, Ven Conmigo, become the first Tejano album to be certified gold. She is credited with popularizing the Tejano music genre into the mainstream market, a genre that was largely male-dominated. As one of the most influential Latin artists of all-time she is now an inspiration to young woman everywhere.
For each and every single day of #WomenHistoryMonth , we're spotlighting a woman who is #BreakingGlass and shattering barriers. Illustrated by @joelburden #R29Collabs
