About the event

Synopsis:

What are the demographic, social, political, ethnic and economic conditions of women in Oaxaca? Some ecological information helps situate Oaxaca’s diversity, and then some history touches on sacred females and political power (matriarchy?) and move into the present with the question of tradition. My goal is to confront and unpack some common stereotypes, and present a list of organizations that work to support, train, empower, and protect women.
