Women Changing the World Together
March is Women’s History Month, and Ser Mujer is celebrating with a series of films, talks, poetry, Take Back the Night, and a brand new mojiganga.
Ser Mujer is a group of Mexican, Canadian, and American women who have organized to raise awareness and honor the struggles and successes of women around the world.
Among the highlights in March: a poetry reading led by Sandra Cisneros at El Sindicato, a panel of Mexican women entrepreneurs at La Biblioteca, film producer Indira Cato with her film about the women who have fed fleeing immigrants aboard the train La Bestia, and filmmaker Catherine Murphy, with La Maestra about how illiteracy in Cuba was eliminated.
As part of the month-long activities, Take Back the Night will be offered to the community with the mission of ending sexual, relationship, and domestic violence in all forms. Hundreds of events are held in over 30 countries annually. This is the first time in San Miguel. The event will include a march, a speak-out with survivors, and a security fair open to the entire community.
Ser Mujer has partnered with the Instituto de las Mujeres, the Center for Global Justice, UNAM, La Biblioteca, San Miguelenses Unidos, and El Sindicato. Check out our website at http://sermujersma.com and mark your calendar.
