Women for Helping Women

Rosana Patlán

By Jesús Aguado

Women from civil society have gathered to form an organization to be “an arm” to help private and public organizations work in benefit of the female population in San Miguel de Allende.

Rosana Patlán, attorney and public accountant, talked with Atención San Miguel about her organization that has begun its first steps. In an interview, she commented that many people had opinions and criticized the work that has been done, as well as the lack of work in favor of women. However, very few really start doing anything about it. “That is why we decided to start this organization. We went from the criticism to action,” she said.

The organization Mujeres in Movimiento of San Miguel de Allende A.C. is made up of Rosana Patlán as president, Kenia Hernández, secretary; and Claudia Barragán, accountant. This is a nonprofit organization, registered before the Secretariat of Taxes and a notary, and already working to support women in situations of vulnerability. For now, the assistance is psychological and legal and for human development.

Patlán, who was director of the Municipal Institute for Women (2012–2015), told us that they will seek to work with the local administration to end institutional violence against women. Although is not visible like physical violence, it exists. Patlán defined institutional violence as lack of attention from the public servants to women who go to public offices to start a process and are asked to return an unnecessary number of times for no reason. MUM, A.C. aims to support women in all cases of vulnerability, going from mourning to a unemployment to physical violence.

Currently, at the offices are located at Calzada de la Estación 64, interior 2, talks are held with women who need to change their lives in different ways. At the beginning they will attend four talks, on self-knowledge, self-esteem, conflict management to make decisions, and empowering themselves.

For more information and help, contact Patlán, 24/7, at 415 107 7575.
