An intimate, brave and moving book about a journalist who becomes a symbol of the fight for human rights. The author Lydia Cacho (Mexico) submerges herself in 46 years’ worth of diaries, photographs, letters and other mementos that she kept, as if she knew she would become a pioneering feminist journalist. In Cartas de amor y rebeldía, Cacho traces a life committed to existential search, romance, passion, poetry and the indignation of living in an unjust world. This is her most intimate and revelatory book. In conversation with Mábel Lara.
The Colombian author María del Mar Ramón has lived in Argentina since 2012 and currently works for radio and on the creation of audio-visual content. In her work as a writer and content creator, her main interest is feminism and related matters, such as pleasure, violence and liberties. She is the co-founder of the Argentinean NGO Red de Mujeres and coordinates the Fanáticas de los Boliches project, which aims to raise gender awareness in nightlife venues. She has written for media outlets such as Vice and Playboy and has published the book Tirar y vivir sin culpa: El placer es feminista, which relates her experiences regarding sexuality and the feeling of guilt that arises when living in a society that constantly judges women. María del Mar Ramón offers a space for talking to young women about their bodies and their desires, without restrictions, fears or shame, where they can think about how to live fully and at liberty. Her latest work is the novel La manada, which explores the intricacies of group attacks. A city and a society that could be anywhere in Latin America; this is the setting for an exploration of masculinity. The book examines the motivations, fears and frustrations of a group of young men who will live the rest of their days knowing they are responsible for a life that is not their own. Can you escape the weight of a body for the rest of your days? In conversation with Carolina Échavez Martínez.
