About The Speakers
Mujeres Creando is an autonomous, self-managed anarcha-feminist movement founded in 1992 in La Paz, Bolivia. It is a movement independent from political parties, NGOs, churches, or any other institution. It is integrated by women from different cultural and social origins. One of the collective’s graffiti reads, “Indias, putas y lesbianas juntas revueltas y hermanadas” (Indigenous, whores, and lesbians together in revolt and in sisterhood). This affirmation constitutes the main political subject from whence Mujeres Creando is born and organized. Creativity becomes an instrument for activism—visible in various political, aesthetic, and creative manifestations—and for their own production of feminist thought and discourse. Mujeres Creando coordinates two houses where they create and manage a series of initiatives for women in Bolivia, an independent radio channel, and a free service for judicial assistance for women who suffer from patriarchal violence.
