Mujeres, México y la violencia de género

Las Hijas de Violencia y Sanjuana Martínez en conversación con Juan Carlos Pérez

Querétaro 2016, 

El movimiento feminista en México lucha constantemente contra una sociedad machista y desigual en la que ser mujer conlleva múltiples desventajas y a menudo riesgos tan serios como la desaparición o la muerte. Colectivos como Las Hijas de Violencia o periodistas como Sanjuana Martínez dan voz a las inquietudes y demandas de mujeres mexicanas de todas las edades, que luchan por una sociedad igualitaria y segura en donde las personas, independientemente de su género o preferencia sexual, puedan vivir libremente y ejercer sus derechos. En conversación con el periodista de la BBC Juan Carlos Pérez.

Este evento sirve como preludio al encuentro de la BBC 100 mujeres en la Ciudad de México, que se celebrará en octubre de 2016

Con interpretación a Lengua de Señas Mexicana (LSM)

Fiction: First Novels

A conversation with two very experienced and acclaimed writers venturing for the first time into fiction. Loudon’s My House is Falling Down is a vivid and compelling novel about a modern love triangle that asks some provocative questions: what happens when you tell the whole truth in marriage? Is it still infidelity if nobody lies? Can you really love two people at once? Rahim’s Asghar and Zahra is a funny, sympathetic and very human novel about the first year of a marriage, and the difficulties of reconciling the sometimes conflicting demands of family, religion and society.
