El Reporte Femenil / The Female Report

In The Female Report/El Reporte Femenil, a single channel video which addresses perceptions of Latin American women in news and ‘infotainment’ culture through a simulated newscast exploring feminism and popular notions of Latina womanhood. Modeled after popular, female-anchored Spanish-language television news programs on Telemundo and Univision, El Reporte Femenil features a fictional newscaster, Silviana Godoy,  “reporting” on the past and current status of women in Latin America. Godoy alternates between English and Spanish over the course of an extended, free-wheeling monologue, alighting on the accomplishments and downfalls of women “south of the border.”
