Mujeres en la lucha
To empower a community, empower a woman. Women are involved in all of the major struggles of our time in leadership roles and behind the scenes, rarely given enough credit for the visible and invisible labor they do. This series of events throughout the Spring of 2016 explores the roles that women play in the immigrant rights movement, the campaign for humanized birth, for civil rights, cultural expression, and more. It is the ties forged by women as activists, as workers, as mothers, daughters, sisters, as midwives, and especially as luchadoras that bind the US and Mexico together, and it is their work that is setting the tone for struggles for rights and dignity in the hemisphere. Join the Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute at CUNY for this wide-ranging series of events and activities throughout New York City and beyond.
Caring for them all:
