Día Internacional de la Mujer

En marzo de 2011, el Centro Hemisférico coordinó un ensayo de la Marcha Mundial de las Mujeres para conmemorar el Día Internacional de la Mujer. Cien mujeres de organizaciones regionales participaron en el taller y en la marcha. Según la directora de Centro Hemisférico, Doris Difarnecio, “Como parte de las actividades de difusión y lucha, se decidió realizar un evento comunitario en conmemoración del 8 de marzo, con la finalidad de sensibilizar a los hombres y mujeres de las comunidades de la importancia de las mujeres en los procesos organizativos y sociales en que se involucran. También con la intención de concienciar sobre las desigualdades de género características de este sistema y cómo, por ser resultado de la cultura, también se pueden transformar.”

 

In March, 2011, Centro Hemisférico coordinated a rehearsal of the International Women’s March to commemorate International Women’s Day. 100 women from regional organizations participated in the workshop and in the march itself. According to Centro Hemisférico’s director, Doris Difarnecio, “As part of the activities pertaining to conscience-building and dissemination, a communal event was held to commemorate March 8, with the idea of making men and women from indigenous communities in the region aware of the importance of women in organizational and social processes in which they are involved. It was also developed with the goal of bringing to light gender imbalances characteristic of this system and how such dynamics can change.”
