Lydia Cacho, one of today's most authoritative voices in the defence of human rights, has written Rebeldes y Libres as a plea for the freedom and rebelliousness of young Spanish women. The idea came about after a long time spent interviewing hundreds of girls under the age of eighteen in Spain on topics including their dreams, aspirations, their fears, their needs, their sexual identity. These diverse young women expressed their opinions openly and spoke candidly of they think about feminism. A writer, investigative journalist, feminist and documentary producer, she has won more than 65 international awards, including the Harold Pinter Prize (UK), the UNESCO Guillermo Cano Prize (France), the Olof Palme Award (Sweden) and the Periodistas de El Mundo (Spain). She has published nineteen books, translated into twenty languages, including Memorias de una infamia, Esclavas del poder, Sexo y amor en tiempos de crisis, #EllosHablan and Cartas de amor y rebeldía.

She will talk to the journalist and El País writer, Berna González Harbour in a conversation that forms part of the series of Hispanic American Dialogues.

At the end of the event, the authors will sign copies of their books at the book stall on Calle Real.
