Since 2013, actress and activist Diane Guerrero, 35, has graced screens as Maritza Ramos on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, Lina in Jane the Virgin, and most recently as Isabela Madrigal, the eldest, flower-producing daughter in Disney’s Encanto. The role Guerrero is most comfortable playing, however, is who she is IRL, a self-proclaimed intersectional mujerista.
What does that mean? Well, intersectionality is a term coined by pioneering scholar of critical race theory Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw to describe the layered effect of discrimination that Black women experience. The term has now evolved to include the different identities that one person may hold simultaneously.

“Intersectionality is so important because we’re intersecting at all times,” says Guerrero. “We have to really consider where we all meet, where we all differ, where we are in our status and our privilege, and how we grew up if we’re really talking about justice and equality.”

And as far as mujerista goes? That’s a word ideated by late theologian Ada María Isasi-Díaz, PhD, who was the chief theorist behind mujerista theology. Spanish for “womanist,” the term aims to delineate the special identity shared by poor, Hispanic, Catholic women. Some people, like Guerrero, have come to see it as a way of advancing the rights of all Latinx women. An intersectional mujerista, then, combines both of those ideologies to mean a multi-dimensional Latinx women (a demographic so often portrayed as one-dimensional), which Guerrero clearly embodies, as evidenced by the wide-ranging interview we had with her.

Well+Good sat down with Guerrero to discuss her activism, surprising-yet-handy beauty practices, and Encanto takeaways (pero, like, duh!).

Coming off a major career milestone, celebrating Encanto’s Oscar win for Best Animated feature, Diane Guerrero took time to chat with SheKnows about the lessons the movie teaches and much more. “I have such a big family. I feel like everyone really filled one of those roles. My mom really connected with Mirabel and Luisa together, which is what she told me when we saw the film,” she said. “That was really beautiful to see — this woman who definitely didn’t grow up with any type of representation to see herself reflected in a film that her own daughter is in. It was really special to see.”

As for playing the impossibly gorgeous Isabela in the Disney film, the 35-year-old actress said, “There’s always going to be expectations from your family, from your community, from society, but ultimately, it’s up to you. It’s up to you what you want to do, [and] who you want to be. And whatever that is, [it] doesn’t have to be perfect. I think that’s a theme with a lot of the characters in Encanto, but especially with Isabela, who is sort of like this example of perfection and with that comes a lot of expectations.”

And that’s why Guerrero has partnered with the personal care brand Love Beauty and Planet to give back to Latinas who are working to make their communities cleaner, greener, and more just. Guerrero is working with the brand to support the launch of a body wash collection and their efforts with a Latina-owned and led organization Mujeres de La Tierra. Specifically, Love Beauty and Planet will be making a $50,000 to fund Vamos a la Playa, a program run by the group that teaches the community about public access to the beaches of Southern California and marine life.

” . . . As Latinas, we’re the head of the households, you know, in most cases, and we are constantly providing, providing for our families. And sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves, you know what I mean?” said the Orange Is the New Black alum. “Which is why I am so happy to partner with Love Beauty and Planet, because it aligns so well with my values. It aligns so well with what I believe has been helping me throughout my entire life.”
