The similarities between Emma Tenayuca and Frida Kahlo was that they were both Mexican activist who tried to change their world for the better. Frida was a feminist revoulutainery who expressed herself through her art. While Emma was a labor activist who worked in the shadows so that the focus can be on the workers and not her,   The most obvious difference is that Frida had polio which caused her to restrict her movement which mad her connect with herself more and got her into making all of the art piece we see today, whereas Emma was able to speak in rallies under the protection of the F.B.I. By comparing Frida to Emma, I learned that even though they seem different they are both Hispanic womans who fought for the equity of woman and workers.
