Feminist Activism in Peru

November 17, 2021 | Donor Direct Action

Dear friends,

Throughout Latin America, machismo culture teaches men, and women, that women are property, less than human, deserve abuse and punishment, and have no inherent rights. Impunity has been and continues to be, in most cases, a given. Movimiento Manuela Ramos, our partner in Peru, has been fighting this deeply entrenched cultural attitude on all fronts since they were founded more than forty years ago, in 1978. Please take a moment to see them in action.

The activists at Manuela Ramos are strong and determined. They are unapologetic, and they are tireless. We are deeply inspired by their profound commitment and hope that you will support their life-changing work with a much-needed contribution.
