Identidades, Autonomía y Derechos Humanos



El sábado 9 de julio del 2011 en el espacio de FOMMA hubo una presentación dada por Mercedes Olivera, Martha Figueroa y Héctor Morales sobre las condiciones de vida y percepciones de las mujeres jóvenes indígenas de las regiones de los Altos, Frontera y Selva Lacandona de Chiapas, Mixteca de Oaxaca, y Sierra Norte de Puebla y Totonacapan, con el objetivo de diagnosticar, a través de la percepción de las mismas jóvenes, las prácticas vigentes que favorecen o restringen el ejercicio de sus derechos a la identidad, a una vida libre de violencia, a la educación y a la salud, con base en las cuales se pueda identificar los límites a transformar mediante la acción pública y el cambio de las subjetividades.

 

On July 9, 2011, in FOMMA, Mercedes Olivera, Martha Figueroa, and Héctor Morales gave a presentation about the livelihoods and outlooks of young, indigenous women from the highlands, borderlands, and rainforest regions of Chiapas; Mixteca women from Oaxaca; and women from Sierra Norte (Puebla) and Totonacapan, with the goal of diagnosing, via an analysis of the women’s thoughts, the current practices that enable or restrict the exercise of their rights to their own identity, to a life free from violence, to an education, and to their own health and well-being, from which the limits to be transformed can be identified and fomented via public action and change in personal and cultural bias.
