One of the negative sides to performing at the Super Bowl compared to a special ticketed concert is that it’s truly impossible for any musician to please the entire audience. This year, the Halftime slot was filled by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, who chose to direct their performance towards empowering women and increasing visibility for Latin America. The high energy performance featured traditional Latin American dance moves, children in light up cages, a large feather cape with Puerto Rico’s flag on one side and America’s on the other, and Shakira playing the drums (that had not a lot to do with representation I just thought it was awesome).

By Noel Gasca


Women across the world today are calling on global leaders and governments to take a stance on ending violence against women. Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and it’s led to protests, speeches, and the publication of studies addressing the issue.
