Rosario Dawson attended the The Daily Beast's bipartisan brunch in Washington DC to celebrate the inauguration of President Obama.
The American actress is not just a powerhouse of beauty but poseses considerable political weight as an activist and advocate for a myriad of causes including environmental, societal and political. Most notably, the she founded the Voto Latino movement that looks to empower the huge Latino community in the United States by urging them to register and vote for politicians and parties that will benefit them.
Together with other articulate Latina beauty Eva Longoria she rowed in behind President Obama and the Democatic campaign adding significant momentum to his campaign. Obama has every reason to be grateful to these two women, as the president won the Hispanic by an incredible 71% to 27%, improving on his 67% share he won in 2008. Some experts even claim that the Latino vote swung the campaign for Obama.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney definitely alienated himself from minority voters by promising to row back on immigration reform, while Obama promised to support it. In recent years the Latino vote has become one of the most crucial minority votes and as it continues to grow, future presidential candidates should ignore it at their peril.
Rosario Dawson is a shining example of the new American Latino – articulate, powerful, intelligent, sexy and female. Wearing a Dolce&Gabbana lace dress form the SS13 collection she embodied all these qualities and more. The actress will join Ryan Reynolds to star in the thriller ‘Queen of the Night’, she is currently shooting ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ and will appear in Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s forthcomming film ‘Trance’. She is allegedly dating the director Boyle after working on the film with him.
