She has contributed to publications such as La Nación, Infobae, Anfibai, Orsai and Vice. In her book El fin del amor.

Certainly one of the most prominent debates today is the one about discrimination in all its forms. Given this fact, the importance of organizations such as Igualdades is clear. This organization works to build new narratives in our society, based on forms of expression that are free of hate, discrimination and stereotypes. In this lecture, we will share some essential points for creating communication that is non-discriminatory, more equal and more positive, whose ultimate goal is to create in fact, and not only in speech, a true integration of all. With Carmen Ortega Casanovas (Igualdades. Org), Claudio Flores (Tridente Aceleradora) and Gianella Carvajal (Pictoline) in conversation with Marion Reimers.
The writer and journalist Laura Castellanos and the illustrator Brenda Castro present La marcha del #TerremotoFeminista, an illustrated work of non-fiction that contextualizes feminism, from the origins of the patriarchy to the feminist movements of the 21st century. Readers follow Sofi, a teenager who joins the demonstrations that are protesting the oppression of the patriarchal system, and with whom we learn about all the victories won, and about all that still remains to be done.

The performance created and led by the LASTESIS collective of the dance and song Un violador en tu camino in Santiago de Chile can be described as one of the most iconic moments in recent feminist activism. Performed all over the world, its strong message regarding the intrinsic violence of the patriarchal system points directly to matters that require urgent change in our societies, at the legal, social and cultural levels, in order to finally bring equality. Now, the collective presents Quemar el miedo (2021), a testimony of their struggle against sexist violence and oppression. In conversation with the writer and columnist Alma Delia Murillo.
