Join the Center for Global & Area Studies as we welcome back UD's 2019 Artist in Residence Silvina Frydlewsky to campus on February 17 for her talk "#NiUnaMenos: Feminist Activism in Latin America" taking place at 5pm at the Class of 1941 Lecture Room at the Morris Library. Light refreshments will be served after the talk.
According to the Gender Equality Observatory of Latin America and the Caribbean, over 3000 women were murdered for gender reasons in this region in 2018. From Argentina to Mexico and around the world, women have taken to public spaces with the green kerchief as their symbol to shout "enough" against sexist violence. That public space where women feel insecure is now a space for protest, singing and dancing. With images and video, Silvina Frydlewsky will discuss women's activism and how women across Latin America are confronting machismo and demanding social change.
