Under the Theme “Together, We Are Superwomen,” Programming for March 8 Will Highlight the Important Role Women Play in Driving America’s Hispanic Super Brand
Under the theme “Juntas Somos Súper Mujeres” (“Together, We Are Superwomen”), special programming will recognize women at the company who build stronger communities, deliver award-winning news and content, and help each other reach their personal and professional goals.
Throughout its history, women have reached many milestones in media in the U.S. Teresa Rodríguez, co-anchor of “Aquí y Ahora,” broke barriers by becoming the first woman in history to anchor a national primetime newscast in Spanish. María Antonieta Collins, co-host of “Crónicas de Sábado,” started her career as one of the firsts female Major League Baseball correspondents. Ilia Calderón, co-anchor of Univision Noticias, was the first Afro-Latina anchor of a nationwide Spanish-language newscast, and Iris Cisneros, Univision Deportes sportscaster, was the first woman to call a soccer match in Spanish on U.S. television.
“At Univision, women play an important role at every level year-round—from our studios to our editing bays, newsrooms and DJ booths, and management, our súper mujeres are key drivers in our company’s continued growth and leadership position,” said Vince Sadusky, CEO of Univision Communications Inc. “During International Women’s Day, we are proud to celebrate their achievements and through this tribute, recognize the positive impact that Latinas have on the communities we serve.”
As part of the “Together, We Are Superwomen” tribute, Univision’s women in front and behind the camera will wear purple to show their support and excitement for this important date globally and the digital look and feel will mirror the same palette. Furthermore, Univision will feature special segments and vignettes during its flagship network shows, as well as specials on Univision.com, social media platforms, Univision Deportes Network and Univision Deportes Radio.
