In honor of Women’s History Month this March, The WAVE is spotlighting the courageous, influential women throughout history who became role models and sources of inspiration for so many young women to follow.

Today, we honor Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, who was an international intellectual celebrity. She triumphed over physical injury and chronic pain to gain recognition as one of Latin America’s finest painters with works of sometimes brutal honesty and self-evaluation.

She was known for her trademark uni-brow, her numerous self portraits and her tumultuous relationship with painter Diego Rivera. Frida Kahlo’s story is beautifully told in the motion picture based on her life starring Salma Hayek.

In honor of her legacy, here’s a memorable quote from Frida Kahlo:

“I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.”

— Frida Kahlo
