The campaign #vivanlasmujeres is a demand by Amnesty International to stop gender violence and femicide. In Mexico a woman is raped every 4 minutes, 7 women are killed DAILY. In average 6 out of 10 women are victims of some kind of violence at their work, school, community and home.
70 women artists and writers have worked on a piece for an exhibition that opens today, (day the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) in the hallways of metro Tacubaya in Mexico City. I am very happy to be part of this important project but also very saddened and angry at this ongoing crisis which is often overlooked.
This exhibition was organized by Clarisa Moura and Abril Castillo.
